As Hoosier History Live salutes Black History Month, we will explore several places, people and events in Indianapolis that had a significant impact during the 19th century on African American life in the Hoosier capital.

Nelson’s guest will be Indianapolis-based historian David Leander Williams, the author of a new book, “African Americans in Indianapolis”. The book covers more than 200 years of city history, but we will focus on the 1800s to explore influential episodes, people and places that have not been the focus of our previous shows about African American heritage.
