Episode 6 of, “Reparations in Action: White Lies Shattered," airs Today - Friday, April 23rd, from 3-4 pm EST on Black Power 96.3 FM, St. Petersburg. This week, host Jamie Simpson welcomes back Penny Hess to obliterate the colonial myth that “The American Revolution was a fight for liberty from tyranny."

Episode 6 will remove the mists of idealism from the so-called American Revolution and examine the reality of settler colonialism in North America from the perspective of Indigenous people and the African working class, who have never experienced democracy in the United States.
