"America, Learn Your History" began as a popular Instagram series by composer and professor Bobby Wooten. Join us for our first radio special.

Stonewall often gets credit for the beginning of the gay liberation movement. But there was an earlier riot, at Compton's Cafeteria in San Francisco, and it was started by a transwoman.

Bobby's guests include actor Tituss Burgess and historian Dr. Susan Stryker.
