For July Fourth, this is a special hour of Radio Boston on the African American and Black experience in America, with an eye toward history. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • We reflect on how we remember our history and what historical dates we recognize — and why — by revisiting the power of The 1619 Project.
  • Jazz musician Wynton Marsalis talks about his own discovery of a musical heritage within jazz and helps us understand his own music better.
  • We spend time in the kitchen with America's Test Kitchen's Elle Simone Scott, who retells a story of her great-grandmother's experience during the Great Migration through poetry and a recipe for lemon pound cake.

This program aired on July 3, 2020.
