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.

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.

American history is a litany of lies about Black people. One of the most egregious is that slavery's end opened the door to equality and freedom. We hear the knock of oppression - no matter how many “bootstraps” lectures we get, we know the truth: there is a debt to be paid. So today, we are having the reparations conversation with the economist Dr. William Darity.

Racist imagery like Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben are only the tip of the iceberg.

This is a stirring conversation on how we all advance Black liberation when we up our media literacy game!

So many of our stories have historically been hijacked, buried, and rewritten until our very essence has been silenced and erased. Our voices are strong, however. We can be the storytellers of our lives, our community, and our futures. But it’ll take healing.

Today’s guest is well-versed in the healing art of storytelling and shares with us how telling stories can help heal wounds. Dr. Reva Hines is an Alphonse Jackson Professor of Political Science at Southern University and A & M College, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She also holds certification in Narrative Therapy and Community Storytelling. She has helped individuals take ownership of their narratives and translate their personal stories of trauma into calls for personal triumphs and voices of victory. She'll help us do the same today.
