Your Call: Is the truth about Black history finally being told?

Oct 6, 2016

On the October 6th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss new museums and exhibits that tell the story of African-American history.

From the Black Panthers 50th anniversary at the Oakland Museum, to a slavery museum in Louisiana, and the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC. Incidents or entire eras that have been covered up, whitewashed, or left out of the history books are now being presented to the public. Will the true story of black history finally be told? Tweet your questions and comments to @yourcallradio and join us live at 10am with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

René de Guzman, Senior Curator of Art at the Oakland Museum of California

Desiree Evans, oral historian and interim director at Women With a Vision
