During a month selected to celebrate “history,” we are treated to a lot of the same familiar civil rights stories. In this special, you can hear some alternate narratives, ones edited out of the mainstream imagining of Black History.

Throughout this one hour special, host Al Letson will explore topics that have often gone overlooked in civil rights discourse: the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot, the "Little Harlem" of Farish Street in Jackson, MI, the influence of R&B, and more.
