The Washington Post, in partnership with American Public Media’s APM Reports, is collecting entries for its forthcoming, co-produced podcast series, Historically Black. Set to launch on September 19, the eight episode, weekly podcast series with guest celebrity hosts will showcase objects that tell people’s own personal stories of black history in America. Building off The Post’s Historically Black Tumblr, a crowdsourced “people’s museum” of objects, photographs, songs and stories, the podcast series will take a rich, researched look at how these items contribute to the public’s understanding of black history and culture today.
Entries are due by 12 p.m. noon ET on Thursday, September 1, 2016 to be considered for the podcast series. Entries submitted after September 1 may be featured on Historically Black Tumblr. All entries must be submitted online to historicallyblack.tumblr.co
Deadline: 12 p.m. noon ET on Thursday, September 1, 2016
Entries submitted after September 1 may be featured on Historically Black Tumblr.
