Black History is White History
Author, poet, and educator Quraysh Ali Lansana joins Chris and Jesse to talk about the work he is doing with the Tri-City Collective, its amazing programming, the upcoming Focus: Black Oklahoma radio series, what it was like to grow up as a black man in Enid, how teaching history requires educating about ALL of history, and how art can be used to help people deal with difficult topics.
