Our goal is simple—educate white people on black history.
#BHforWP is a multiethnic collective dedicated to loving black and brown people by educating, resourcing, and challenging white people to actively participate in racial justice. The highest calling of humanity is to love. Whether you know it or not, the racial disparities in our country hurt us. They train us to protect our advantages rather than love others, and that mentality reduces us.

New episodes will be released on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.

    Respectability with Dr. Tara Green

    Respectability with Dr. Tara Green

    We interview Dr. Tara Green about respectability.
    She's an award-winning teacher-mentor-scholar who has degrees in English from Louisiana State University (M.A., Ph.D) and Dillard University (BA). With nearly twenty-five years of teaching experience, she is currently Professor and former Director (2008-2016) of African American and African Diaspora Studies at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. Her areas of research include Black gender studies, African American autobiographies and fiction (late nineteenth through contemporary), African women’s literature, African American parent-child relationships, and African Americans in the South. Believing that research should explore major issues of the day, she considers how literature reflects current social and political concerns.

Name the criminals

Love the podcast. I notice during your podcasts that you don’t name the people in charge. For instance Ida B Wells episode you say “the judge” etc. name the white criminals. Strip them of anonymity!

This is Everything!

The title should be Black History for all People. I’m an African American Woman that thought homework was completed, but after listening to this, honey, I am burning Google and the Library up! It’s a great listen and conversation starter with my 14 year old daughter. Together we have learned a great deal and hope the content keeps coming!
Thank you!

American History should be taught like this

I can only imagine how different the world would be if all grade school, junior high, and high school kids learned American History from this perspective. We would grow up eyes wide open to the importance of supporting reparations. And possibly we would be less tolerant of any form of racism. I have been listening to an episode every day this month in honor of Black History Month and will continue listening to each new episode. Very informative and captivating.
