Interesting story on how black Americans got involved in amateur radio and how the hobby helped them survive in the 1950s and 1960s.  Particularly fascinating is the story of Bob Moore, Jr. (K8EJM), who found amateur radio a source of inspiration and a way to escape the effects of a then segregated United States.  A well-written article from NPR station WYSO (91.3 MHz).  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
