In The Telling: Black Family Podcast

Archiving the black family experience is a very exciting project for us. Archiving is not always something that is physical and tangible; it is sometimes in the telling. If we are fortunate, we learn our past from those who lived it. Oftentimes, it is by our own efforts and labor to uncover pieces of truth about our family history. This is what we will explore in this bi-weekly podcast, people sharing stories about their families and how they came to learn them.

He’s currently exploring his filmmaking interests through documentary work. He is a regular contributor to the American Age podcast.
