After 18 episodes we're wrapping our premier season covering Black history, race consciousness, religion, freethought & liberation movements. We hope you have listened, questioned, gained perspective, empathy and enlightenment about the established Legacy of Black Freethinkers, dissenters and non-religious leaders in American Civil Rights and around the globe.
Our season I concludes with the final part of our “Conversations” series featuring co-host Verdell Wright and a very special presentation from Black atheist, author, activist, scholar and director, Dr. Sikivu Hutchinson!
