Posted by American Black Journal Editor on

The Honorable Alma Stallworth

We continue our month-long celebration of Detroit’s black history when we talk with one of the most powerful African-American women to ever sit in the Michigan House of Representatives. Dr. Alma Stallworth has written her memoir and we’ll hear about the legacy she left behind in the state legislature.

We also look back at the pioneering and innovative WGPR-TV 62, when we talk with members of the WGPR-TV Historical Society: President Joe Spencer, Executive Director Karen Hudson Samuels, and Founding Board Member Amyre Makupson.
