Resident Uncovers Black History in Scranton

Glynis Johns, Black Scranton Project

Although Black people have been residents of Scranton, Pennsylvania for nearly two centuries, there have been few historical documented records to tell their stories. Guest Glynis Johns, Founder and CEO of the Black Scranton Project, talks with host Sheila Hyland about her journey in uncovering Scranton’s black history, from leaving her hometown to the graduate thesis that brought her back to start something as a sense of pride for the community and also for young black people see Scranton as a place to be proud to live and grow. blackscranton.org
