Illustrating Black History w/ George McCalman

George McCalman is an artist and creative director based in San Francisco, who recently published The Illustrated Black History: Honoring the Iconic and the Unseen. He joins us today to discuss the process he went through to narrow his list of historical figures from 500 to 145, his artistic process, and what it meant for him to orient himself around Black history in the US as a young Grenadian immigrant. Among the figures featured in the book are James Baldwin, Madeline Anderson, Colin Kaepernick, and the first Black person to travel into space, Guion S. Bluford.
