Double Date with America’s Founders + Dr. Poetry on Spoken Word

In our new series, Sally proposes a bookish Double Date by sharing two of her favorite books on a particular topic, starting with America’s founders. Taking a deep dive into the early years of U.S. history may not seem super sexy, but these books are engaging and offer insights your teachers might have missed in history class.

Then, Niba takes a moment to sit down with Dr. Poetry. In the segment, Dr. Poetry performs spoken word and does a tribute to ancestors, both Black and her own ancestors. After the tribute, Niba asks Dr. Poetry about her creative process and what oral traditions mean to her. 

Books mentioned by Sally: 

You Never Forget Your First by Alexis Coe

Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts
