    The Psychological Effects of White Supremacy with Dr. Kevin Cokley

    White supremacy is a horror you'll find at every turn. It’s the foundation of governmental policies that disadvantage us. It lives in policing systems that target us. And most dangerously, it has wormed its way like a parasite into the psyche of much of Black America. So what do you do when the killer's inside the house? Black psychologist Dr. Kevin Cokley takes us deep within to understand the psychological harm of white supremacy - and how to heal from the generational wounds it's inflicted.

    Real Talk about Reparations with Dr. William Darity

    Real Talk about Reparations with Dr. William Darity

    American history is a litany of lies about Black people. One of the most egregious is that slavery's end opened the door to equality and freedom. We hear the knock of oppression - no matter how many “bootstraps” lectures we get, we know the truth: there is a debt to be paid. So today, we are having the reparations conversation with the economist Dr. William Darity.

Great stuff

I love this stuff! The utter distortion in schools (I’m a college professor) related to the blacks (and other minorities) is real. I am amazed when I inform students at the college where I teach (in PA) that slaves actually were owned and worked on the land where the college itself stands.

The looks on their faces is actual disbelief.

Anyone who doesn’t understand, learn or acknowledge the brutal perseverance of blacks in America (and elsewhere) is either ignorant or an utter fool.

This site has simply amazing history which leaves me mesmerized every time I learn more about the African/American experience.

Thank you!

As a Caucasian Women I have been taught many racial believes that my family had. I didn’t recognize it as hatred and wrong until my early 30’s. I started my process of educating myself on black culture then... I am so grateful for this podcast because there are many great lessons there. I can pass this on to many of my friends and also educate my child and stop the cycle of taught racism on my end. My dream is that we can all gain spiritual knowledge from all of this and propel our children into a less hateful world.

Black History

You assume because I want to hear about Black History that I am Black. Not so. I am a second generation white American. My family came from Ireland during the first decade of the 20th century. I know much of my family history but I want to know more cultures, ethnicity, history even when it includes “mans inhumanity to man”.
