RACE TALKS® with Kimberly Y. Erwin on WGXC-90.7 FM

Our FEBRUARY show is on in which we salute those African Americans who came before us, the enslaved--of whose shoulders we all now sit atop in honor of the theme: "Black History Month."

This month, I, host Kimberly Y. Erwin, seek to share much of what is still little known about the enslaved American. The population formerly referred to as American Slaves has enriched America in so many invaluable ways. Few have achieved their place in the historical spotlight, until now.

Joining me on the show is Guest TALKer, Heidi L. Hill, who holds degrees from Binghamton University and the Cooperstown Graduate Program, is a distinguished historic site manager at Crailo and Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site (located in the Hudson River Valley). With a deep commitment to preserving diverse historical narratives, Ms. Hill actively dismantles traditional ones, fostering inclusivity for all cultures represented at the sites.

For over two decades, her inclusive approach, demonstrated through innovative exhibitions and engaging programs, has successfully drawn a wider audience. Through her stewardship at Crailo and Schuyler Mansion, Heidi has brought overlooked stories to the forefront, sparking profound discussions about the contemporary relevance of history. Central to her impactful leadership is a firm belief in the transformative power of diversity, showcasing the profound impact achieved by acknowledging and honoring the complexities inherent in our shared history. Her talk last year at the Hudson Area Library in which she expounded on the contributions of enslaved Americans in New York in relationship to the Schuyler estate was so insightful, I am excited to have her come on the show to impart such rich stories in celebration of Black History Month.
