What Do You Know About Thanksgiving?


Join us, Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, this week(Thursday, November 12 at 9 pm est) as we explore the true nature and history of one of the biggest celebrations of the year, Thanksgiving. A day that has multiple meanings and is considered a time for families to gather and enjoy themselves. But is there something else going on "behind the scenes"? Is there some ancient festival that predates America that caused the creation of this feast-day?


Come with us as we look back through the centuries and explain how early Americans celebrated this occasion and how Indigenous Natives thought of it. Find out how and when it became a national holiday. Find out if it is truly a holy day or simply a holiday. Then the big question, should Black Americans celebrate this day?


Don't forget brother Dennis Jefferson will be joining us with another episode of Healthy Matters.
