Welcome to Black History Month 2021. This year we are celebrating powerful words from our history. Each week across Black History Month you will hear a speech or some other selection of powerful and historic words performed by scholars and influencers along with their perspective on why the words are still so relevant today.
In this episode you will hear from a few scholars from The Harvard Debate Council Diversity Project (HDCDP). College Freshman Payton and Xavier from lasts years Black Futures Month are back along with high school Freshman Naima. They perform Sojourner Truth’s powerful speech “Ain’t I A Woman” and then follow up the performance with a dynamic conversation on the piece that meanders through various impacts on the world we live in today.
Tune in, listen and learn.
