Knowing our history is knowing ourselves; it is how we become more of ourselves.

In this episode we explore Black love and Black humanity through a set of love letters exchanged between a young Black man and Black woman captured in Dear Mary, Dear Luther: A Courtship in Letters  by Jill Marie Snyder.  Snyder is the daughter of the young couple, Mary and Luther, and through the story of her parent's romance and courtship, she captures the truth of Black people, relationships, and the family. In this interview we continue to dismantle the lie of White superiority and Black inferiority by unearthing and illuminating the narratives of Black men and women in their own words.
