'Finding Your Roots' Host Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Joins AT&T to Talk Black History on Top Radio Shows

Noted scholar and Emmy® award winner Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will take to the radio airwaves this week to talk black history in support of the AT&T* marquis Black History Month campaign AT&T 28 Days

The digital-first initiative celebrates people who dare to make their own history. During February, we share the stories of black people who've made an impact both past and present. 

Dr. Gates will discuss highlights from the digital albums on the AT&T 28 Days website. These albums feature black trailblazers who changed American history and are currently making history. This is the ninth year for the campaign.

Dr. Gates will also talk about his PBS series, "Finding Your Roots," which is currently in its third season. AT&T is the prime sponsor for the fourth season that kicks off this fall.

"Black people have been at the forefront of technology as far back as when Lewis Latimer drafted plans for the first telephone," Dr. Gates said. "I'm proud to be working with AT&T. They're continuing to share the stories of black trailblazers in the arts, business and STEM and hopefully inspiring the next generation of innovators."

You can catch Dr. Gates on dozens of your favorite national radio shows and podcasts in the coming weeks, including
  • Back Story -- Slate's Panoply Network
  • We the Fifth – Sirius XM
  • Stuff You Missed in History Class -- How Stuff Works Podcast Network

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
