Old Black Hollywood

Josephine Baker's good looks and jet setting lifestyle served as a perfect cover, allowing her to shuttle military intelligence and secret messages in and out of the country by hiding them with her sheet music or tucking them away in her underwear. Baker also sheltered refugees in her home, and spent time entertaining troops in North Africa and the Middle East. The unlikely spy later received the French Croix de guerre for her high-risk work with the Resistance.

Deborah G. Plant is an African American and Africana Studies scholar and literary critic whose special interest is the life and works of Zora Neale Hurston. She is editor of Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo,” a New York Times best seller, by Zora Neale Hurston; author of Alice Walker: A Woman for Our Times (2017), a philosophical biography of Alice Walker, and editor of The Inside Light: New Critical Essays on Zora Neale Hurston (2010); and author of Zora Neale Hurston: A Biography of the Spirit (2007) and Every Tub Must Sit On Its Own Bottom: The Philosophy and Politics of Zora Neale Hurston (1995).

Dr. Brenda M. Greene interviews Dr. Deborah G. Plant, African American scholar, literary critic and editor of Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo” written by novelist, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. Barracoon sheds light on the inhumanity of slavery as told from the true story of Kossola (Cudjo Lewis), one of the last survivors of the Atlantic slave trade. It adds another literary work to the canon of freedom narratives by enslaved Blacks in this country. Greene and Plant discuss Plant’s motivation for editing the never-before-published nonfiction work and the significance of Kossola’s voice and Hurston’s research methodology.

About the Station

In 1972, using donated equipment from the Model Cities Program, Dr. Mary Umolu was awarded a grant to establish Medgar Evers College Radio, which began to broadcast over WNYE 91.5 FM reaching the tri-state area.

From that point on, Dr. Umolu dedicated her time and

unrelenting energy to transform the fledgling radio station into its current state as a successful communications vehicle for the students of the college, the Central Brooklyn Community, and beyond.

Some of the most notable Deejays who have gotten their start from this radio station are Lenny Greene of 107.5 WBLS and Barry Mason of Iheartradio.com.

WMEC Radio can be accessed anywhere in the world by going on to the world wide web, visiting wmecradio.com and clicking on listen live now.
