    1st day of school: The little Rock Nine Preview

    While creating my soon to be released episode about the Little Rock Nine, I got to thinking about education, school and specifically my first day at school. I started to think about people's first days in general. I decided to ask a few listeners and friends to share their first day experiences, some of which you'll hear in today's episode. 

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Welcome to season 2 of The Black History Buff Podcast.  This season kicks off with an interview with a young man named Enosadeda Odiase

    Nosa is a former engineering student now fully-fledged engineer, born in London from Nigerian parents and one half of a writing team who have produced what I can only describe as an African Game of Thrones.  In the interview, we discuss his background, reasons for writing the book, African History and even his favourite food.

    Todays Black History Blitz is about a self-taught mathematician, astronomer, compiler of almanacs, a writer, an inventor and the man who may have completed the Design for Washing DC Capitol City of the United States of America from memory.



    Benjamin Banneker was born November 9th, 1731 on a farm near Baltimore that he would eventually inherit from his father. Although he occasionally attended a one-room Quaker schoolhouse, Banneker was mostly self-educated and did much of his learning through the avid reading of borrowed books. It was noted that from a young age he was particularly skilled at Mathematics.



    His early accomplishments included constructing an irrigation system for the family farm and a wooden clock that kept accurate time and ran for more than 50 years until his death.

From the research, to the writing, to finding the sound effects, then editing, posting and promoting via social, I like many many many podcasters do all this by myself and brings me to this weeks proverb which is:

    Show Notes: 
    Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican activist, and entrepreneur who founded the UNIA and campaigned for a better quality of life for all black people.  The Pan African red black and green colours you see and that form part of the Ghanian flag come from Garvey’s organisation. 

    I’ll be doing an episode on Garvey soon but for today I wanted to focus on a quote from him made on February 10th 1925 from an Atlanta prison.
