Black History on Democracy Now!

DN! In DepthFebruary 24, 2015
Blacklivesmatter 1

As the United States marks Black History Month, browse our interviews about the Black Lives Matter Movement, and with guests who where there when history was being made: 1968 Olympic medalist and international civil rights icon John Carlos, Black Panther Party leader Kathleen Cleaver, and Claudette Colvin–often called "the other Rosa Parks" because she was the first African American to refuse to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery Alabama, and many more. You can also see rare speeches by Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; musical performances by pioneering musicians like pianist and composer Randy Weston; and interviews with historians like Craig Steven Wilder, author of "Ebony & Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities." Don’t miss our extended conversation with Ava DuVernay about her film, "Selma." See more on our YouTube channel here.
