Growing Up Black is the new release from "Stories From The Stage: The Podcast." As a child, Angie Chatman finds herself face to face with her own Blackness when a police officer visits her classroom, and Valerie Tutson seizes an opportunity to teach her students a little-known piece of Black history. Listen to how growing up Black in America means forging cultural bonds, struggling for visibility and, all too often, receiving unearned judgment.
