Black Radio: Telling It Like It Was

Beginning Friday February 26 at 3pm, KPTZ presents a 6-week series from the Public Radio Exchange and Radio Smithsonian: the 25th anniversary edition of Black Radio: Telling It Like It Was. This series reveals the correlation between Black radio programming and African American culture milestones through interviews, historical airchecks, comedy, drama, and music. It explores radio during the great migration of Blacks from the South, trail-blazing Black DJs and stations, and Black radio during the Civil Rights movement. Black Radio: Telling it Like it Was will air Fridays on KPTZ, following Filter.
