Black History Year

Learning your history makes you - and your people - stronger. As Black people, we know we?re left out of the history books. That the media images are skewed. That we need access to experts, information and ideas so we can advance our people. Black History Year connects you to the history, thinkers, and activists that are left out of the mainstream conversations. You may not agree with everything you hear, but we?re always working toward one goal: uniting for the best interest of Black people worldwide.

The Power of the Black Voter with Nse Ufot

Welcome to Season 2 of Black History Year.

In everything we do at PushBlack, we?re always asking, ?How do we work together to make things better for Black people?? In this season of the Black History Year podcast, we?re stepping to that challenge in an even bigger way. 

We have episodes that?ll open eyes to new ideas about reparations, criminal justice reform, and the ways Black cooperative economics can help us strengthen our communities and build wealth. And we?re gonna reconnect to the beautiful parts of our culture found in our food and spiritual practices.

12 episodes. Twice as much Black History as our first season! So make sure you tell your people that we?re back and let?s get to it.

In our season kick-off, we're sitting down with the amazing Nse Ufot, the executive director of the New Georgia Project, where she?s working to get eligible voters registered and participating in our democracy.  We know there is A LOT going on around voting rights. Nse is exactly the right person to get us focused on what?s important. It was a great conversation and we're really happy to have her with us to kick off season two.

Fear of A Black Woman's Body

Medical treatment disparities for Black women is as old as America. Dr. Dorothy Roberts, a professor of Africana Studies, Law, and Sociology at University of Pennsylvania, has been producing groundbreaking work on race and gender that focuses our attention on urgent, contemporary issues in health, social justice, and bioethics. For this BHY, we dig deep with Dr. Roberts on the history and present legacy of forced sterilization, reproductive choice, and even the misguided idea that reproductive health is ?a white woman?s issue.?

Is There Black Power In A Loaded Gun?

Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. DuBois, even Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. all have a place in one of the most obscured parts of our history - the Black tradition of gun ownership. Douglas Jefferson, the Vice President of the National African American Gun Association, argues that for Black people in America to be fully vested as citizens, we have to be able to experience the fullest freedom every single liberty granted in the Constitution - including the right to lawfully bear arms.

Reclaiming The Prophecy: Religion In Black America

?We must face the fact that in America,? said MLK, ?the church is still the most segregated major institution.? For Black people, the church has traditionally been a place of  restoration, renewal, community, and collective action. But even during the vigor and heat of the Civil Rights Era, with church leaders like MLK up in front, the role of Christianity did not go unquestioned in Black America. And now, with the ?prosperity gospel? as loud as ever, we?re interrogating this pillar of our culture. The Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews of Faith In Action helps understand how we got here, and what we should be asking of our faith communities if we?re truly interested in Black liberation.

Is This The Blueprint for Black Liberation?

American history is a mess. We?re taught our ancestors were docile, child-like beings who were too incompetent to find a way out of slavery - but we?re expected to study and admire the slaveholding leaders of the American Revolution! We are taught that non-violent protest and forgiveness are the only ways we can achieve our goal of liberation, which can only be granted by benevolent white people. But that?s not the whole story: our true history is LOADED with examples of Black resistance. Dr. Brandon Byrd shows how history reveals the truth about how our ancestors and contemporaries have risen up against oppression, and he takes us inside the most successful Black rebellion - an event that shook the world and challenges the status quo even today.

Destroying the Narrative White Hollywood Created

No matter how many tickets we buy, or how many hours we watch, Black Americans still have very little influence over what film or television gets made - or how it portrays us. The images of Black people pumped out to the mainstream range from affirming to annoying to actively damaging. Morehouse?s Dr. Stephane Dunn helps us unpack how we got here. She is one of the founding members of Morehouse?s Cinema, Television, & Emerging Media Studies Program, serves as its program director, and takes us from "Birth of a Nation" to "Good Times" to Tyler Perry.

A Young Black Millionaire Forced Into Hiding

?I remember hearing somebody describe freedom as the ability to wake up in the morning and decide what you want to do with your day.? Dr. Boyce Watkins, founder of the Black Business School, has plenty to say about personal freedom, Black liberation, and self-determination. For Watkins, black economic advancement can?t be reduced to whether you are for, or against, capitalism, socialism or any other ?ism.? Instead, it?s about wielding economic opportunities to empower ourselves and our people.
