    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.

    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.

Klantrecensies

Jooooorrrrriiiis ,

Quality stuff!

You can tell the guy who makes this does his research and is a professional. The audio mixing is on par with big shows like radiolab, 99% etc.

milantvm ,

Interesting!

Have listened to the first episode and already love this. Original stories and the sound edits + great voice add to the story tremendously. Reminds me a bit of Hardcore history but then shorter :) In short, a very nice and interesting podcast! Looking forward to binging the other episodes.
