Join The Root as we live-stream WGBH TV's Basic Black program, which will focus on spirituality.

Viewers can watch live online and chat with us as experts discuss how spirituality has shaped the identity of African Americans over centuries. Panelists will explore the spiritual path of blacks through Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism,  atheism, humanism, or agnosticism.  

Among those speaking will be Callie Crossley, national media commentator and host of The Callie Crossley Show, 89.7 WGBH radio; Kim McLarin, cultural commentator and assistant professor of writing, literature and publishing, Emerson College; and Phillip Martin, senior reporter, 89.7 WGBH radio.  


The Root will participate via live chat, which you can join using the module below. Use it to comment and ask questions during and after the discussion.

Check out the live chat and the live webcast here at 7:15 pm EST on Friday, December 16 or at
