The Teacher was Black
UN Radio has been broadcasting since 1946. Our archive of audio material reflects the rich history of the UN and the work it has contributed to across the world.
This program, The Teacher was Black, which was recorded in 1955, describes the work of the United Nations against racism, prejudice and stereotypes. It contains some extraordinary audio material including an interview with a young British school pupil who describes his fears about black people before two teachers from the British Gold Coast (now Ghana) came on an exchange program to teach at his school. He is interviewed a second time following the exchange; the contrast of before and after makes for a fascinating story.
