“The Disappearing of Sister Koko with Prof. D. Boose” is a collaboration between HumanitiesDC’s Porchtales and DC historian and podcaster Prof. D. Boose. In this six-episode series, we will meet Sister Koko and listen as she details her interactions and relationships with people like Stokely Carmichael, Miriam Makeba, Cleveland Sellers, Afeni and Tupac Shakur, and as she shares harrowing stories of fighting racism, existing COINTELPRO, and nuances of Black living in twentieth-century America. Time and circumstance have tried to disappear Sister Koko, yet she still rises through our collective listening. Tune in and be a witness to stories of Black freedom activism in America you haven't heard.
