HumanitiesDC Event: Porchtales Podcast – The Disappearance of Sister Koko Episode 5

December 21, 2022


Porchtales is HumanitiesDC’s new podcast, where every season embarks on a deep-dive exploration of a subject that helps listeners get to experience the District through the eyes of those who make up the fabric of our nation’s capital. “The Disappearing of Sister Koko with Prof. D. Boose” is a five-episode season where we meet Sister Koko and listen as she details her interactions and relationships with people like Stokely Carmichael, Miriam Makeba, Cleveland Sellers, Afeni and Tupac Shakur, and as she shares harrowing stories of fighting racism, existing COINTELPRO, and nuances of Black living in twentieth-century America. Time and circumstance have tried to disappear Sister Koko, yet she still rises through our collective listening. Tune in and be a witness to stories of Black freedom activism in America you haven’t heard.
