Season 2 Trailer

In This Episode

Audio Drama at its best. The 2021 season of Destination Freedom Black Radio Days will examine the issues facing communities of color – exploring police shooting, immigration, health disparities, and gender bias.

The podcast continues where the first nationwide Black radio drama, produced in Chicago by Richard Durham more than sixty years ago, left off.

The show walked a daring line between reform and revolution and was shut down by its network in 1950, as McCarthyism and anti-communism tightened its grip on American broadcasting. Using new scripts as well as drawing on archives, Destination Freedom Black Radio Days illuminates a largely unknown, but important chapter in the history of human rights and tells how radio played its part from the very beginning.

That boundary-breaking program, Destination Freedom Black Radio Days, dramatized the lives of great figures in African-American and other people of color past and present.
