More from this show

Wednesday, Feb. 15

Black in Arizona, a new digital-first series presented by Arizona PBS, explores what it’s like to be Black in the 48th state, highlighting the contributions, trials and triumphs of Black Arizonans.

In the episode premiere, we explore the experiences of two Black women who have become political leaders in Arizona: former Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans, the first Black woman elected mayor in Arizona, and Chandler Councilwoman Christine Ellis, the first Black woman to be a council member in the city of Chandler.

Listen to their stories, share in their experiences and celebrate these remarkable “firsts” as we learn about the challenges of overcoming stereotypes and the impact their roles are making within their communities.
