Previewing the Rochester Public Library's new Archive of Black History & Culture

Do you know where in Rochester Frederick Douglass published the North Star? Or where Malcolm X delivered his last public speech before he was assassinated?

This hour, we sit down with City of Rochester historian Christine Ridarsky and her colleague, Antoine McDonald, to discuss the Rochester Public Library’s new Archive of Black History & Culture. They also take us through a list of Rochester locations with ties to significant moments in our nation’s history.
