The Power of the Black Voter with Nse Ufot
47 min

Welcome to Season 2 of Black History Year.

In everything we do at PushBlack, we’re always asking, “How do we work together to make things better for Black people?” In this season of the Black History Year podcast, we’re stepping to that challenge in an even bigger way. 

We have episodes that’ll open eyes to new ideas about reparations, criminal justice reform, and the ways Black cooperative economics can help us strengthen our communities and build wealth. And we’re gonna reconnect to the beautiful parts of our culture found in our food and spiritual practices.

12 episodes. Twice as much Black History as our first season! So make sure you tell your people that we’re back and let’s get to it.

In our season kick-off, we're sitting down with the amazing Nse Ufot, the executive director of the New Georgia Project, where she’s working to get eligible voters registered and participating in our democracy.  We know there is A LOT going on around voting rights. Nse is exactly the right person to get us focused on what’s important. It was a great conversation and we're really happy to have her with us to kick off season two.

This podcast is produced by PushBlack, the nation’s largest non-profit Black media company.

New Christmas Music 2020
New Christmas music in 2020 is like everything else related to 2020: very different. In fact, we would say there is more heart to the music this year and nothing showcases that better than the good work of the artists and musicians whose songs we feature in this traditional episode of the Merry Little Podcast. Each year we try to do this. To share new music of Christmas is to share Christmas better than almost anything else. We purposely steer clear of the mainstream and the known in this episode to feature those emerging artists who give their all to Christmas in their art. That’s what makes this episode powerful and that’s what makes it fun. Here is the new Christmas music we’re featuring this time around: Home for the Holidays – Sudden Flying Website: YouTube – Purchase: When This is Over – Harper Denhard Website: Apple Music: YouTube: Spotify: Christmas Time is Here – Amanda King Website: YouTube – I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day – Jim Brickman Website: YouTube: The Gingerbread Man – Jack Tempchin Website: YouTube – Darkness Won’t Prevail – Tim Bowen, Eternal Friends Music WebSite: YouTube: Home for Christmas – Performed by Rachel Warren YouTube: Sheet Music Plus: I Wonder What You Got for Me — Leah Belle Faser Website: Album preview: Let It Snow – — Luke McMaster Website: YouTube: Christmas Kielbasa – Mike Schneider Band Website: Facebook: YouTube: Follow That Star – Joanna Jones Instagram: YouTube:
