KFAI's celebration of Black History Month begins this Friday, February 25, 2011 at 5:00 a.m. and continues through midnight. The celebration begins with three programs focused on topics of national interest, A Small Southern Town: The Nation's Capital in Slave Times, Malaga Island: A Story Best Left Untold, and Race and the Space Race. While these three stories come from Public Radio Exchange, the rest of KFAI's BHM celebration is produced by African American's in the Twin Cities. Education, youth, gospel, work songs, dance songs, blues, healing, Black Pride, and Motown sounds encompass the breadth of content you will hear on KFAI's BHM special day of programming.
