28. Why Black History Matters with Freddie Taylor

Over twenty years ago while attending graduate school, Freddie Taylor came across a book that would change the direction of his life. The book was The Miseducation of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson and it’s a book he has read countless times since. Taylor then began a transformative deep dive into Black history that led to him founding Urban Intellectuals, a company committed to informing Black people of their history and culture. In 2017, Urban Intellectuals first released its flagship Black History Flashcards and has sold over 300,000 flashcards since. In this podcast, we wonder how this book, written in 1933, could still be so relevant now, and talk about the critical importance of teaching Black history to our children.  Freddie is a one-of-a-kind guest who brought some amazing energy to the show! We know you’ll love this one.
