For more than forty years, the Negro Baseball Leagues provided opportunities for Black American athletes to play professionally. We learn about these leagues with author, historian, and son of a NBL umpire, Byron Motley. This episode comes with a Learn-Along guide!
This time on The Children's Hour we explore black history through music. We've put together a special playlist of songs to educate about a few of the people who made significant contributions to technology, culture, and the quest for justice and equality.
This time on The Children’s Hour, we learn about a profession with the task of informing the public of the truth: Journalism. We will learn from journalists themselves, including two from New Mexico Press Women who let us know what journalists do, and how they are different from paid advertisers. Find out what we can look for to verify the truth of a story. Then we meet Maria Hinojosa, a groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist with a new children’s book about her life.
