Welcome to Season 07 with Jeffrey Wright!

The Story is back for its seventh season!

In this season, we are joined by our friend, Jeffrey Wright, to tell the amazing backstories of eight African American trailblazers who changed the world.

You’ll get to walk a mile in their shoes and their identity is kept secret until the climax. You’ll hear tales of discovery, learn how empires rose and fell, and stand beside innovators as they faced their tragedies and turned them into triumphs.
