The Black Is America podcast highlights little-known African American figures who helped write the story of America. Join us as we shed new light on lost chapters in our nation's history. Hear the amazing, inspiring accounts of black American inventors, heroes, scientists, entrepreneurs and so much more.
In Season 1, we feature the stories of Lt. John Fox, Marian Anderson, Wendell Scott, Bessie Coleman, and more. In each episode, we examine the legacy of these great Americans. Learn how they paved the way for other exceptional African Americans and contributed to a continued tradition of excellence in the black community.
While racism is a common theme, it is not the central theme. These stories focus instead on what black people have contributed in spite of it, and the impact of those contributions shows clearly that African American History is American History.
