"Historically Black" Podcast Brings African American History To Life

Objects hold history. They're evocative of stories stamped in time. As part of The Washington Post's coverage of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, people submitted dozens of objects that make up their own lived experiences of black history, creating a "people's museum" of personal objects, family photos and more. 

Over the course of nine episodes, the Historically Black podcast brings those objects and their stories to life through interviews, archival sound, and music. 

The Washington Post and APM Reports are proud to collaborate in presenting these rich personal histories, along with hosts Keegan-Michael Key, Roxane Gay, Issa Rae and Another Round hosts Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton.
