Joseph Garrera and Jill Youngken

To celebrate Black History Month, host Galen Godbey's guests are Executive Director, Joseph Garrera, and Assistant Director and Chief Curator, Jill Youngken, of the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum.

They discuss the goals, scale, and scope of Black History month, and important recent scholarship about the African-American experience. The discussion includes the privations and brutality inflicted upon blacks, but also the remarkable resilience and huge contributions of this important community and its leaders to our culture, to the infrastructure that built the U.S. economy and to the defense of the nation.
