Black History Month: Progress, Promise, and the Future

February 22, 2022
Black History Month

In this month’s episode of Justice Matters, we’re digging into our archives to present a special episode for Black History Month.

Featuring excerpts from three conversations with a range of speakers from academia and activism, our guests discuss the historical legacy of enslavement, the periods of progress followed by rollbacks, the promise and peril of the current moment, and how we build more inclusive and just societies for the future.

Join host Sushma Raman as she speaks with Wade Henderson, interim CEO of the Leadership Conference for Civil and Human Rights, Dr. Keisha Blain, award-winning historian and author of “Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Struggle for Global Freedom,” and Dr. Megan Ming Francis, author of “Civil Rights and the Making of the Modern American State.”
