    What Does Black Liberation Look Like?

    What Does Black Liberation Look Like?

    It's a question that requires tapping into your imagination. A question that forces you to explore the possibilities within freedom. And it's a question we ask every guest on Black History Year.
    "What does Black liberation look like to you?"
    In this bonus episode, you'll hear some of the most thought-provoking and inspiring responses to this question from incredible experts we've interviewed in seasons past, including an abolitionist and environmental sociologist, an African-centered psychologist, an artist and community organizer, a grassroots leader, and many more. A liberated future is in our reach -- and it starts with having a vision of it.

    Celebrating Juneteenth in the Carceral State with Ebony Underwood

    Celebrating Juneteenth in the Carceral State with Ebony Underwood

    Juneteenth is a special holiday for Black people - it commemorates when the last of our enslaved ancestors were freed. And yet, many Black people remain in bondage through a new form of slavery that's just as insidious: mass incarceration. On this special episode of BHY, we sit down with Ebony Underwood, social entrepreneur and founder of We Got Us Now, to discuss the significance of Juneteenth and the ongoing struggle for liberation.

    Black Power and a Black Agenda with Candace Hollingsworth

    Black Power and a Black Agenda with Candace Hollingsworth

    You’ve heard us say it before. The Black vote is powerful. But the two-party system wasn’t designed to actively engage our needs. So how do we reclaim our power in a political ecosystem that takes our vote - our power - for granted? Today’s guest has the insight necessary to begin answering that question. Candace Hollingsworth was the first Black mayor of Hyattsville, Maryland, and founder of Our Black Party, an independent political group whose mission is to advance a political agenda and address the needs of our people. We'll explore the history of independent Black political parties and the political actions we must take to reclaim our power.

    Slavemasters In Your Neighborhood with Clint Smith

    Slavemasters In Your Neighborhood with Clint Smith

    The debates over U.S. monuments that celebrate Confederate generals, soldiers, and politicians show just how pervasive slavery's legacy is - and how it continues to impact the way Black America moves and exists in the world today. How is - or isn't - this nation reckoning with the history of slavery, and what does it mean for our community? Today, we begin to answer that question with author and award-winning poet Clint Smith. Using his debut nonfiction book, "How the Word is Passed," as a guide, we explore how America is or isn't accounting for the system of slavery and more fully understand history's vital role in the progress of our community.

    From Slavery to Mass Incarceration with Dr. Byron Price

    From Slavery to Mass Incarceration with Dr. Byron Price

    It's true: slavery never ended. It's a dehumanizing system that continues to enslave, exploit, and devalue Black people in one particular institution: prisons. Today, Dr. Byron Price - author of such work as "Merchandizing Prisoners" and "Prison Privatization" - takes us on a journey from slavery to convict leasing to the modern-day policing industry as we know it, to show the clear connection between slavery and prisons, and to offer insight into how our community can begin to fight against mass incarceration.

Taking the place of educational system that fails us

As a 48 year old caucasion woman, I am Extremely grateful for being involved with PUSHBLACK for a few years now. I have learned SO much! it’s given me the tools & motivation to educate myself AND my children in areas our government and educational system has failed all of us. I will continue to donate when I can and will Always try to use this tool to educate and spread the word as much as I can.
I would love to see a little more on class division. We can all see it’s a huge issue especially in the disgraceful judicial “system” (if that’s what we can even call it.).
Thank you so much PUSHBLACK…. Prejudicial people come from all races but the reality is I can see why some groups have walls up as they have been hurt and wronged by systemic racism ( mainly) for generations.
If ALL of society could confront and SIGNIFICANTLY change things maybe only then could we ALL live in harmony.
We all bleed red. My biggest hope is that my biracial children and I will be around to see us UNITED BY EQUALITY & live in harmony .
It’s BEYOND sad that I had to EXPLAIN TO my darker skinned son that I was not comfortable with him tinting his car windows and explained why it be A different story for his brother who is much lighter but from same dad that he wouldn’t have as much of a chance to be harassed by police. No mother or father should EVER worry about the atrocities of fearing a traffic stop turning into murder. IT HAS TO STOP. IT WONT STOP UNLESS WE EDUCATE OUTSELVES AND GET INVOLVED. ALL
OF US!! I can’t thank you enough for educating us all!!

Review time 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 ,

Ok…

So, Nat Turner was not real. Not all Black people are from Alkebulan(Africa), actually most of our ancestors are the Niji People of Turtle Island. But great podcast!

Unseen racism in school systems

Do we know or try to what is going on with our kids in schools, being labeled special Ed. And being push out of class. Listen to your kids complaints about the teachers treatment of them In class. I came up where teachers would tell you “ I got mine and you are going to get yours”, that attitude of teaching no longer exist. Tell parents we are sending our kids to prison by not preparing them for this beast of a world populated by Wolves in sheep’s clothing
