Black people have always created beauty from the bleakest conditions. And to survive in America, we even had to create our own language. This week on BHY, sociolinguist Dr. Sharese King explores the complexity of African American Vernacular English, the innovative spirit embedded in Black languages, and the cultural significance of how Black people talk. BHY is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company - hit us up at BlackHistoryYear.com and share this with your people!
