Basic Black Live: Taking the History Out Of Black History

(Originally broadcast on February 4, 2011)  As we head into Black History Month and the 150th Anniversary year of the Civil War, this Basic Black conversation features a look at recent efforts at revisionism in black history such as Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour's cool recollections of Freedom Summer (a time which saw intimidation and murder visited upon civil rights activists) or Virginia's proclamation establishing Confederate History Month, without the mention of slavery.

Our panel: Callie Crossley, host of The Callie Crossley Show, 89.7 WGBH Radio; Rev. Irene Monroe, syndicated columnist and blogger; Lionel McPherson, professor of philosophy, Tufts University; and Phillip Martin, senior investigative reporter.
