About This Show

Come listen to an amazing story. 103-year-old Sadie Delany and 101-year-old Bessie Delany have welcomed us into their Mount Vernon, New York, home. Making dinner to celebrate their long deceased father’s birthday, they tell us about their lives, how they fought injustices big and small, overcoming the racial strife of the 20th century with their charm, warmth, and dignity intact. They tell a personal, family tale of people who yearned to do the right thing, and strove towards it with every ounce of their beings. Come have dinner with the Delanys, and hear the story of our nation.
