New York African Free School

As we head into Black History Month we’ll hear stories about Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner and Dr. King. But there are so many other fascinating stories to tell.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about a remarkable school for young black students in 19th Century New York City.

We’ll also spend an academic minute with a not so well known African American historian.
