In the Telling is a podcast that features stories about the Black family experience. We serve as a platform for exploring family records, blood and chosen families, personal testimonials, connecting family stories to communities and larger historical events, conducting research in archival institutions, and discussing family lore. We explore these and other subjects in our unique podcast. In the Telling airs twice a month -- tune in!
