Black History is not just for February.  Learn how we can share Black History with family and friends year round. 

Join me and my guest Regina Vaughn, President of the Philadelphia Branch ASALH , Philadelphia Heritage as we talk about Black History and the organization.

Established on September 9, 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the Founders of Black History
Month carry forth the work of the founder, the Father of Black History.
 They continue his legacy
of speaking a fundamental truth to the world--that Africans and peoples of African descent are makers of
history and co-workers in what W. E. B. Du Bois called, "The Kingdom of Culture." ASALH's mission is to
create and disseminate knowledge about Black History, to be, in short, the nexus between the Ivory Tower
and the global public. We labor in the service of Blacks and all humanity.
