Happy 4th of July! We’re revisiting two of our favorite conversations with American historians today.
This hour, you can hear the great civil rights pioneer and historian John Hope Franklin. The interview was recorded on June 14, 2006. Sadly, Dr. Franklin passed away in 2009.
Later in the hour, we conclude with a segment from the Center for Emerging Media’s own Peabody Award-winning series, Just Words. You’ll hear Jacquetta Lyles, who was working as a day laborer at the sports stadiums in Baltimore.
