GOOD MORNING, P.O.U.!
This week’s series will focus on the 1968 documentary Black History Lost, Stolen or Strayed narrated by Bill Cosby.
I first heard about this series while listening to Joe Madison interview Prof. Henry Louis Gates. Prof. Gates said this was the first documentary about African-American history to air on television. What I found so interesting about this documentary is how Dr. Cosby takes a no holds barred approach to discussing the subject. I’m talking about a straight, no chaser, NFTG critique on U.S. racism and the psychological damage it has done to the Black community.
But don’t take my word for it. Judge for yourself…
