WXDU News, Sports, and Information Sunday 2/28 6:00-8:00 p.m.

We start things off on this last Sunday of Black History Month with an episode from With Good Reason titled "Rock and Roll in Black and White" at 6:00. In this episode, host Sarah McConnell talks to Slate’s pop critic Jack Hamilton about how rock music went from an interracial form of entertainment to one dominated by white artists. Later in the show, we'll learn from Johnny Moore about the shift in importance from baseball to basketball in the black community. This episode also explores the stories of several prominent African American leaders, as profiled in interviews conducted by Phyllis Leffler and the late Julian Bond and in Fatima Massaquoi's autobiography.

Then at 7:00, BackStory with the American History Guys makes its contribution to Oscar Sunday with "Real to Reel 2016: History at the Movies." This episode takes a look at America's past through the Silver Screen. The Guys examine the history behind movies including The Revenant, Bridge of Spies, Trumbo and Inside Out. The hosts also explore the issue of diversity in Hollywood.
