Black History Month

blackhistoryWitness: Black History

For Black History Month, you may like to listen to interviews with people who were there at key moments in civil rights history, from Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech, to surviving Robben Island with Nelson Mandela.

These programmes are taken from the BBC World Service programme Witness, 2009 – 2013 and can be found by clicking here.

One Response to Black History Month

  1. HollyR says:

    There are some really amazing clips and videos here

    The Tuskegee syphilis study is discussed in a book called ‘The immortal life of Henrietta Lacks’ by Rebecca Skloot – one of the best books I’ve ever read, really relevant to black history month and still relevant to modern medicine. Can’t reccomend it enough

    On a lighter note, the James Brown concert at the Boston Garden is brilliant
