Black history is American history. There are so many amazing, inspiring stories that weave together the fabric of this country. One Detroiter has decided to take some of these stories and dig a little deeper, exploring Blackness in all forms.
Creator and filmmaker Khaliph Young started the Tapestry in Black podcast series, which shares the stories of the Black people that lived them. Season one focuses on the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s-60s, and some little-known figures who played a big role in progress.
Young joined CultureShift to discuss why he started the podcast, what he learned by making it and how he hopes people of all ages will gain inspiration from it.
“We want to just be able to capture these legacies and present them in a way on a platform.” — Khaliph Young, creator
