Black History Year

Black History Year

By PushBlack

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. BHY is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company - hit us up at BlackHistoryYear.com.

Reconciling History As a Black Anarchist with Ashanti Alston

Today’s History Story — A Rallying Cry That Inspired Oppressed People Worldwide It was in Plainfield, NJ, in 1971 where our guest - Ashanti Alston - joined The Black Panther Party, radicalized in the wake of the 1967 Newark Riots and Malcolm X’s assassination years earlier. Ashanti would begin his life as an anarchist on that day, and it has guided his every step – through the Panther Party, then the Black Liberation Army, his incarceration, and his work honoring the sacrifice of political prisoners in the name of Black liberation with The Jericho Movement. Ashanti sits with us now with a 21st-century view of the impact of his radical brothers and sisters and the lessons learned from a lifetime of seeking Black liberation. _________________________ Black History Year (BHY) is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company.

Pulling Back the Curtain on Police Propaganda with Andrea Ritchie

Today’s History Story — They Exploited A Black Child For Copaganda Social media posts showing police officers posing with Black protestors or hugging young Black kids who appear openly afraid are promoted, often by police departments themselves, to show their officers in a positive light. This is an effort to counter negative narratives and aims to shape the public’s perception by painting cops as kind, friendly and heroic when the truth does not reflect this. Andrea Ritchie is here to tune our eyes and ears to catch this “copaganda” in practice and educate us on the alternatives baked in our ancestry. Ritchie is a police misconduct attorney and organizer whose writing, litigation, and advocacy have focused on policing and criminalization of women, especially LGBTQ women of color, who have been victims of police violence. She is the author of Invisible No More, a history of state violence against women of color, and co-author of No More Police: A Case for Abolition with Mariame Kaba. _________________________ Black History Year (BHY) is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company.

Building Better Labor Unions with Bianca Cunningham

Today’s History Story: White Americans Kept Unions Exclusive – But Black Workers Still Triumphed The right to earn a living wage under just and safe work conditions is as inalienable a right as our freedom of speech. Still, the history of Black people in the American labor movement is rooted in injustice. White supremacy has sought to keep Black workers from the best jobs, the most robust industries, and their sacred labor unions. However, today is a different day, as Black workers now occupy more seats at the labor union table than any other race or ethnicity in America. Here to help us explore this dramatic change is Bianca Cunningham, campaign director at The Action Center on Race & the Economy (ACRE), a non-profit that directly takes on the financial institutions and anti-democratic actors that are responsible for pillaging communities of color and poor families, subverting voting rights, and destroying our environment. She’s also the co-founder of the AfroSocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus of the Democratic Socialists of America. Bianca will share her story of unionizing her retail job, taking that first step towards reconfiguring the makeup of labor unions everywhere. _________________________ Black History Year (BHY) is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company.

Dismantling the School-to-Prison Pipeline with Judith Browne Dianis

Today’s History Story: The Five Terrible Ways Schools Are Preparing Our Children For Prisons Hundreds of thousands of Black students are trapped in schools where officers and authority figures unfairly police their behavior. These biased practices and policies rob many students of their futures and feed them into the school-to-prison pipeline. You may be familiar with this term, but it goes deeper than you might know. In this episode, we talk with Judith Browne Dianis, the “Godmother” of this phenomenon, to comprehensively understand the school-to-prison pipeline. She is a movement lawyer, professor, and executive director of Advancement Project, a civil rights organization committed to actualizing “America’s promise of a caring, inclusive, and just democracy.” As a pioneer in deconstructing this insidious structural institution, Judith has published transformative reports like Derailed: The Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track. She’s been doing this work for 20-plus years and isn't stopping anytime soon. Black History Year (BHY) is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company.

The Fight for Food Justice with Cheryl Whilby

Today’s Black History Story: White People Are Stealing From Us AGAIN Using This Scheme White supremacy is starving Black America, almost literally snatching food from its mouth.

Today, we're sitting down with Cheryl Whilby to learn about the Black tradition of farming and how Black farmers are transforming the food system by returning to the soil. Cheryl Whilby is the Communications & Development Director at Soul Fire Farm, "an Afro-Indigenous-centered community farm committed to uprooting racism and seeding sovereignty in the food system."

Black Love: A Return Home with Dianne Stewart

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.

The Erasure of Black Disabled Voices with Anita Cameron

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.

The Black Barber Shop with Quincy Mills

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."

Digital Blackface and Spectacularizing Blackness with Dr. Francesca Sobande

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.

What's Required of Us with Hawk Newsome

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.

Black History Year Season 5: Creating The Culture

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.

Employee vs. Entrepreneur: Which One Are You?

What’s up fam, thanks for tuning into another episode of Black History Year. On this show, we connect you to the history, thinkers, and activists who are left out of mainstream conversations. But this week, we’re switching it up. Instead of our usual show, we’re sharing an episode of PushBlack’s newest podcast, Building Black Dollars! It’s no secret that the economic system is rigged against us as Black people. Barriers such as the racial wealth gap and banking discrimination continue to plague our communities.

Still Alive and Still Fighting with Robert Lee Johnson

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.

Critical Race Theory and The Obstruction of Black Education with Dr. Ivory Toldson

Education has always mattered to Black people. Our enslaved ancestors risked their lives to learn what white oppressors withheld. Because those oppressors understood the important role knowledge of ones history, one's world, and oneself plays in Black liberation. Hundreds of years have gone by, and throughout them all, white supremacy has continued the work of suppressing Black education. So what can we do about it? We're sitting down with Dr. Ivory Toldson to find out. Dr. Toldson is the national director of education, innovation and research for the NAACP and has worked as a professor at Howard University for 16 years. Learning is the path forward -- we first have to challenge those barriers block us from it.

Silencing Black Women's Resistance Dr. Heather Finch

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.

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.

Why Words Matter with Farah Jones

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.

The Power of Accountability with Dr. Albert Samuels

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.

Escaping the Plantation with Dr. Christena Cleveland

Contrary to what you might think, many of us are living on plantations in present-day.

Indigo and Liberating Black Spirituality with Queen Quet

There's a power within Black people. One that, through colonialism and westernization, through space and time, has perennially lived at our core: West African spirituality. The problem?

Guiding us to that reconnection is award-winning "Art-ivist" Queen Quet, who, through her organization, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition, advocates for the preservation of the Gullah/Geechee Nation and knows all too well how the motherland's spirit still lives in Black Americans.

Black Power and a Black Agenda with Candace Hollingsworth

Slavemasters In Your Neighborhood with Clint Smith

The debates over U.S. monuments that celebrate Confederate generals, soldiers, and politicians show just how pervasive slavery's legacy is - and how it continues to impact the way Black America moves and exists in the world today. How is - or isn't - this nation reckoning with the history of slavery, and what does it mean for our community? Today, we begin to answer that question with author and award-winning poet Clint Smith. Using his debut nonfiction book, "How the Word is Passed," as a guide, we explore how America is or isn't accounting for the system of slavery and more fully understand history's vital role in the progress of our community.

Defining Ourselves with Dr. Clenora Hudson-Weems

Feminism, Black feminism, womanism. According to our guest today, author, literary scholar, and professor Dr. Clenora Hudson-Weems, none of these concepts serve women of African descent or the Black community at large. But one theory does: Africana womanism. Based in nature, observation, and community, Dr. Hudson-Weems expounds on what Africana womanism is, what it isn't, and why this framework might be what's needed to pull our people closer to Black liberation.

Environmental Racism: A Hidden Threat with Dr. Dorceta Taylor

We're making a deadly mistake if we don't talk about environmental justice when we discuss racism and Black liberation. The lasting impacts of toxic waste, pollution, climate change, and other harms continue to cause long-term health outcomes and take countless Black lives. So on this episode of Black History Year, we're talking about it. With the guidance of environmental sociologist Dr. Dorceta Taylor - who has contributed to the environmental movement for more than 30 years - we'll dig into the connection between racism, economic inequality, and the environment, and the actions we can take NOW to protect ourselves and our future.

Black Art and Liberation with Rosalind McGary

They say that life imitates art. That's rarely as true when we consider the transformative, evocative, challenging, and inspirational work Black artists have been creating for decades. From Clementine Hunter to Emory Douglas to Kara Walker, Black artists have influenced society by changing opinions, instilling values, and translating experiences across space and time. Art is a language that expresses who we are, connects us to ancestors, and speaks to our strength and humanity. It rouses us to action and it has the ability to liberate us from the present into a more just future. In this episode, we speak with Rosalind McGary, an artist and founder of SEPIA Collective, an artist-run organization whose mission is to engage artists, build community, and empower youth.

How To Bend Reality with adrienne maree brown

Everything humanity has ever created – the good and the bad – started with imagination. But what if we could harness the power of imagination to build a truly just future for Black people? To dream so big the world as it exists can’t even contain our vision? We spoke with adrienne maree brown, an author and activist behind many books, including "Octavia's Brood" and "Emergent Strategy," that explore visionary ways to build a joyful, liberated future for Black people using nature, science fiction, pleasure, and afrofuturism as jumping off points.

The Killing of Patrice Lumumba with Dr. Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja

He was a man of the people. A man who wanted one thing and one thing only: true independence for his country. But if the U.S. government had its way? He’d be shot dead before his 36th birthday. In a conversation led by sociopolitical scholar Dr. Georges Nzongola-Ntalaja, we discuss the assassination of Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba.

The Psychological Effects of White Supremacy with Dr. Kevin Cokley

Africatown and the Essence of Black Power with Dr. Natalie S. Robertson

Black power has many forms: a fist in the air, a liberated mind, or the ownership of the ground upon which you stand. The founders of Africatown, a self-determined community of freed Black people in Alabama knew this kind of Black power. In 1927, Zora Neale Hurston delved deep into this question when she interviewed Cudjo Kazoola, the last surviving member of the community that had founded Africatown. Dr. Natalie Robertson expands on Hurston’s work, the importance of Africatown, and the essential elements of Black empowerment.

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.”   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

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.   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

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.   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

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.   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

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.   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

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.   Black History Year is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.
