Today's Story: Could This Be The Alternative Our Children Need For Education? There hasn’t been a time when learning wasn’t important to Black people, whether for enrichment or survival. Unfortunately, white supremacy has corrupted information and spread it through an anti-Black school system. Solutions exist, though, and one solution on the rise is unschooling young black people. Today’s guest is a leading voice in the unschooling movement. Akilah S. Richards is a mother, author, educator, and founder of Raising Free People, a network committed to community organizing at the intersection of privilege, parenting, and power.

Today’s History Story: Black Love Non-Monogamy Dianne Stewart is back to talk about Black love. We’re continuing the conversation about Deconstructing Black Love so that we can rebuild and reconnect with spirituality, heritage, and how we love ourselves and each other outside of white supremacy. In that interview, we learned a lot about love, particularly how as African descended people, love is more than romantic. It’s heritage. It's community. It’s us. Dr. Stewart is a professor of religion and African American studies at Emory University with a focus on religion, culture and African heritage in the Caribbean and the Americas. She’s written several books including Black Women, Black Love: America's War on African American Marriage and Three Eyes for the Journey: African Dimensions of the Jamaican Religious Experience.

White supremacist erasure and whitewashing of Black disabled people’s voices and stories has happened for centuries now—and for centuries, too, ableists have abused our disabled ancestors. This violent erasure bleeds into our present--including in our own community. To give us more insight, we'll be talking to Anita Cameron. As a Black, disabled person, Anita has dedicated almost 40 years to community organizing and making sure that folks with disabilities have equitable rights in society.

Today's History Story: A Black Holiday Tradition The Black struggle is real. But life isn’t all oppression. Our culture, our community, our Blackness is something to celebrate, and many of our ancestors celebrated through traditions and holidays that you might not know exist. Today's guest, Dr. Keith Mayes, will school us on the empowering history of the holidays we created. Dr. Keith Mayes is an associate professor in the Department of African American & African Studies at the University of Minnesota.

Today's History Story: Black Barber Shops The Black barbershop is a cultural institution. It's a place where you can get much more than a haircut. You get community. You get jokes. You might get politicized. And you will get the straight talk that we often hold back when navigating a larger public that's committed to white supremacist systems. What we don't often talk about when thinking of the barbershop is it's vital role in the Black economy. To help us understand both the politics and economics of Black barber shops, we’re sitting down with Quincy Mills. Quincy is an associate professor of history at the University of Maine and College Park. He teaches courses in 20th century African-American history, particularly business and political history. He's authored, "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America,” and is working on a new book called “The Wages of Resistance: Financing the Black Freedom Movement."

White supremacy has systematically broken the heart of Black America. Its toxic presence has, for generations, harmed our self-concept and even how we view each other. History tells another story, though. Today’s guest is going to help us get to the heart of the matter. Dr. Dianne Stewart is a  professor of religion and African American studies at Emory University.  Inspired by her research and teaching in Black love studies, much of her work examines the structural forces that, across four centuries, have made coupling and marriage difficult for Black people.

Today's Historic Story: Ray Charles vs. Elvis Every time we hop on Twitter, Instagram, or any other social platform, we’re running into brands who use insidious tactics to get into our pockets. From "Black" CGI influencers to brands that align themselves as Black allies when they just want Black dollars, it's all digital anti-Blackness and it's causing more harm than we may know. Leading today's conversation is Dr. Francesca Sobande. She's a Senior Lecturer in Digital Media Studies at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture at Cardiff University. She’s a researcher and writer who’s authored several books and published work about “woke-washing,” digital (re) presentations of Black people, and how brands mis-use, exploit, and commercialize such notions like Black social justice activism.

Today's Historic Story: Nearest Green No matter what laws change or how much progress they want us to believe we’re making, racism only evolves and makes it even more necessary for us to get creative in the fight for our liberation. That means, we’ve got to take back our stories. We do that toay with Dr. David Ikard. He is a professor of African American and Diaspora studies at Vanderbilt University. An award winning author of 4 books, his work centers Black issues, social justice, and the lives of Black men and boys. But Ikard isn’t just a scholar. He’s an artist too. it’s no surprise that most of his paintings relate to black folks, social justice, self-determination, nature, and the rawness of our collective humanity, he says.

By providing resources, workshops, and other forms of community support, the collective encourages women to do what they’re so often told not to do, and that’s advocate for themselves.

There's a target on our back. We're not talking about individual bull's eyes. We're talking about one big, red dot aimed at us collectively by a litany of systemic and political predators blocking us from our stolen freedom. Alone, the target will engulf us, but what happens if we face down our enemy together? What happens if we look our oppressors in the face as one? This week we sit down with Hawk Newsome to talk about community, politics, and what's required of Black folks to really achieve Black liberation. Hawk Newsome is the co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York. In only a few years, his organization has passed seven pieces of legislation and is tirelessly working to make the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act become law. Nationally, this Bronx-made activist has hit the pavement for our people and going into the communities to serve what’s needed locally.

For four seasons – that’s right, four seasons – we’ve learned histories hidden from us, challenged the systemic structures built to subjugate us, and asked those critical questions that can push us towards Black liberation. In season five, those conversations can’t stop–won’t stop!–as we continue using history building toward liberated Black futures. That’s why we're talking about the exploitative rewritings of our narratives, and asking what's required of us to confront an anti-Black system. We’re digging into the culture, too! Don’t miss talks about our holidays, the digital packaging of Blackness, and the Black horror genre in film, literature, and everyday life. When it comes to Black liberation, we can’t stop and won’t stop fighting.

There's a myth going around. The myth that Black revolutionaries of past are no longer living or have retired from the fight for liberation. But this isn't the truth, as today's guest proves. A best-selling author and former Black Panther who served as a leading member of the party’s Compton branch, we're having a conversation with Robert Lee Johnson about the Black Panther's impact, the continued work, and BPP organizing strategies we can still apply today as we travel the path towards Black liberation.

There is nothing like Black music. From jazz to hip hop, our music's cultural contribution touches every corner of the world. And yet, Black artists are consistently underpaid, overlooked, and exploited. Today, law professor Dr. Funmi Arewa takes us into the world of music to understand the legal rights of creators, how they've been exploited, and what we as consumers can do about it.

There have been innumerable attempts to silence the voices of our ancestors, especially the stories of enslaved Black women. While we hear about the realities they faced of sexual violence and exploitation, there’s a layer not readily discussed. And in that hidden layer are the many ways Black women resisted enslavement while navigating within it. This episode we sit down with Dr. Heather Finch, professor of literature at Belmont University, to learn the resistance of enslaved women and the strategies we can apply today.

You've likely heard them before. "Don't get too dark." Or "You look good, have you lost weight?" And even, "Be quiet -- that's not ladylike." These phrases might seem inconsequential, but embedded deep within are messages of anti-Blackness. And they're messages that the most impressionable of us especially internalize: our children. Today we'll unpack three problematic phrases -- and their implicit meanings -- with Farah Jones. They are a multiracial writer, editor, and educator. A former middle and high school teacher, they currently write for various publications and present workshops and trainings around the country focusing on racial and gender justice and community building. Words matter. It's time to get intentional about how we use them.

It's not news that white folks in power have manipulated and weaponized the interests of Black people to their benefit. It's why oftentimes we see Black folks electing other Black folks into office. But all skin folk ain't kinfolk. It's why knowing the motives and actions of those Black people we elected into office is so important. It's why we have to hold our people accountable. Today Dr. Albert Samuels, an author, elections analyst, and a professor of political science, shares his perspective on what this looks like, and how exactly we can use accountability to better our community.
