    The Shameful Phenomenon of Sundown Towns

    The Shameful Phenomenon of Sundown Towns

    What are Sundown Towns?A sundown or sunset town was a city, town or neighbourhood in the US that excluded non-whites after dark.
    The term sundown came from the signs that were posted at the Towns borders stating "Negro, Don't Let the Sun Set On You Here." A stark warning that let blacks know we had to leave by sundown.

    1st day of school: The little Rock Nine Preview

    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.

    Show Notes: 

    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.

I started listening to this podcast in Late 2019 and it has been such big part of my ancestral evolution. Learning about our prominent Black brothers and sisters of all times has been conformation after conformation. So do yourself a favor no matter what race you are... learn this Afro history! Because it’s just not our Afro history... It’s WORLD HISTORY!

Divine job King Kurus, From the research to the all-around quality of the podcast, keep it going! We need this more than ever in 2021!

All I can say is WOW

I am so grateful that I found this podcast. I think that hearing lesser known stories is so extremely beneficial - especially at the current time. Thank you so much for continuing this podcast and hope to hear new episodes in 2021.
