002-B: Traveling While Black in the United States

Traveling While Black

Traveling while black in the United States is and always has been a dangerous undertaking.  Over the centuries, different laws, practices were put into place to restrict African-Americans’ freedom of movement, among many other basic human rights.  At the same time, industrious members of the community have created products, services, and solutions to overcome oppression and regain our freedom and dignity.

In today’s episode, I describe a brief timeline of events, legislative actions, judicial decisions, and entrepreneurial ventures that overview the history of traveling while black in the United States.  Be sure to check out the links below to multiple source documents referenced to develop this episode.  If you’re interested in exploring this topic further, or want to recommend other topics for the show, email me at gjones@buyblackpodcast.com
