February is Black History Month, a national observance since 1976. Here at RETN, we recognize that African-American history is American history, and our community's history.

To celebrate and honor Black History Month, we have collected new and previously-aired programming that represents Black History Month through work produced by, about, and with African-American Vermonters, and contemplations of black history for Vermont audiences. Each Monday in February, we will be airing shows that celebrate Black History Month -- see our full schedule below:


Listen to THE UPSIDE every Wednesday from 9-11 AM on WBTV-LP 99.3 FM Burlington.
