I don't know much about William G. Allen. He fled Boston during slavery and settled in Liverpool, where he founded a school. Click here to listen to an interesting audio about him.
We will be talking about William G. Allen tonight on What U Need to Know. Click here to listen. The show starts at 7 p.m. UK time, 2 p.m. EST. If you miss it, you can still listen to the recording here.
We have done several Black history shows over the past few months, including Juneteenth, Watch Night, Haiti/African Remembrance Day, and more. Click here to listen to previous recordings of What U Need to Know.
In addition, our guest will be Mark Simpson of London-based Black History Studies, who will talk about their work.
I hope you can join us.
