    Episode 5: The Land of Our Fathers, Part 2

    The Provosts, a family of sugar-cane farmers in Louisiana, had worked the same land for generations. When it became harder and harder to keep hold of that land, June Provost and his wife, Angie, didn’t know why — and then a phone call changed their understanding of everything. In the finale of “1619,” we hear the rest of June and Angie’s story, and its echoes in a past case that led to the largest civil rights settlement in American history.

    On today’s episode: June and Angie Provost; Adizah Eghan and Annie Brown, producers for “1619”; and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, a professor of history, race and public policy at Harvard University and the author of “The Condemnation of Blackness.”

Excellent

This is excellent. Thank you

This should be continued!

Writing this from the comfortable vantage point of the Germany, I am extremely grateful for this extraordinary piece of reporting.
I am aware that these stories are only a few examples out of a countless number for the structural racism that fuels the USA until today. Voluntarily or not, black people have always helped to paint a much nicer and optimistic picture of that “democracy”(in name only, as her present state so aptly demonstrates) for the outside world - or that at least is my personal perception - and this program itself proves the point perfectly.
Being German, I know how the past informs the present, and I think that this program is invaluable in its personal directness, excellent research and overall accessibility.

Captivating (no pun intended 😬)

This podcast should be mandatory in schools. It confronts the Disney-like approach the US has on its past and challenges the allegedly “good white men”. It sometimes had me close to tears. Thank you, Nikole !
