The times are changing and ROUTES, A Guide to African-American Culture just published it’s first podcast episode.
We have been documenting the strides of African-Americans in every artistic and cultural facet for over forty years. Enlightening and inspiring readers with articles about Dance, Theatre, Music, Art, Photography, Education, Politics, and more. ROUTES promotes and preserves the rich African-American legacy for future generations.
ROUTES’ Roots was a signature feature of the original magazine. It closed each issue recalling an extraordinary innovator who forged a route through a discipline that was once barred to us, but that we now not only integrate, but dominate.
ROUTES, A Guide to African-American Culture Podcast is a monthly recitation of those extraordinary innovators who remind us that greatness is culled from the persistent pursuit of dreams that may only be fulfilled in future generations.
Our Podcast series begins with extraordinary innovator Jazz vocalist and screen actress Billie Holiday, neé Eleanor Gough McKay. Text relating to this Podcast can be found in October 1977, written by Marlene Chavis. Recitation by Perri Gaffney.
