"Can Do: Stories of Black Visionaries, Seekers, and Entrepreneurs,” with host, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress, Alfre Woodard. These stories come from The Kitchen Sisters collection—stories of black pioneers, self-made men and self-taught women, neighborhood heros and visionaries. People who said “yes we can” and then did.
A man tapes the history of his town with a scavenged cassette recorder, a woman fights for social justice with a pie, a DJ ignites his community with a sound. Join us for this richly produced and deeply layered hour long special that resonates for Black History Month, or any month. Produced by The Kitchen Sisters (Nikki Silva & Davia Nelson) and Roman Mars.
“Can Do” is supported in part by the Reversioning Project of the Public Radio Exchange at PRX.org and The CPB, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
