In January of 1981 and at the peak of his career, actor, singer and dancer Ben Vereen was asked to perform at an inaugural celebration for Ronald Reagan. With a successful career on the stage, winning a Tony Award for Pippin in 1973, Vereen become a household name on the strength of his role as Chicken George, grandson of Kunte Kinte, in the ground-breaking mini-series Roots (1977). With access, perhaps, to his greatest stage, Vereen chose to pay tribute to America’s first Black cross-over artist, Bert Williams.

'Why are there so few black male teachers? Chris Emdin of Columbia University suggests that a cycle of failure haunts students and their teachers. Students act out, so teachers tighten the rules; more restrictions combined with dull and irrelevant curricula cause students to fail, and teachers quit -- thinking it’s their fault. Emdin raps his Humble Opinion on why the system needs to be changed.' -- +PBS NewsHour

'When soprano Julia Bullock took the stage recently to sing the legacy and history of Josephine Baker, the groundbreaking African-American singer and performer who fought in the civil rights movement, she didn’t dress it up. There was no marcelled hair, no banana skirt. Just a woman using her voice to speak truth to power and telling the story of a woman who paved the way. Her star ascending, the Juilliard-trained Bullock and host Helga Davis talk about what can and can’t be processed through performance and what it means to find your voice and your place in the world.' -- +WQXR

'Author Margot Lee Shetterly grew up knowing that black women were behind the success of the early space program, that eventually became NASA. Shetterly grew up knowing their children and grandchildren in her Hampton, Virginia community. Her recent book Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race tells the story of these "human computers" who helped launch America's space program, broke racial and gender barriers and supported the next generation of African American engineers and aerospace professionals. Shetterly talks with James Braxton Peterson, host of #TheRemix.'
