Black history month is usually spent retelling the same stories and highlighting the same figures. And while it is important that we don’t forget the struggles and sacrifices of the significant Black American heroes, have you ever wondered about the Black community and figures in your own backyard? Who were the local business owners and leaders, and what places hold significant value in your town’s Black History?
In this episode, our host Dan Kimbrough and guest Glynis M. Johns, discuss what happens when someone seeks to answer those exact questions.
Glynis is the CEO and Founder of the Black Scranton project. Through her work and research, she’s shedding light on the untold and often intentionally hidden story of Black Scranton and proudly saying, “We been here!”
