Pleased to introduce History is US. It is a 6-part documentary podcast from C13Originals Studios and Jon Meacham, the team behind the 2021 Webby Award-Winning Best Podcast Series It Was Said.

Written and narrated by Dr. Eddie Glaude, award-winning author and professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, History is US journeys back to face the truths about race at the heart of the American story. From the aftermath of the Civil War to the mid-twentieth century struggle for freedom to the election of Barack Obama to the current day racial reckoning, History is US asks questions about who we are as a nation, what race might reveal about our current crisis and where we go from here.

Through the voices of distinguished historians and scholars, this limited series gives listeners the background and education to understand how we got here … and how we can all use history to clarify the choices before us.
