Oppenheimer, The Missing Blacks, and The Bomb with Historian CR Gibbs

The film "Oppenheimer" raked in $80.5 million in the United States on its opening weekend. In the international market, it took in about $93 million for a total of more than $174 million, according to BoxOfficeMojo.

The cast list for the $100 million "Oppenheimer" mentions only one Black scientist.

The movie purports to show a critical time in the life of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb. In one of the greatest scientific efforts during WW II, the Manhattan Project marshalled the efforts of over 200,000 scientists, technicians, and workers and helped win the war by dropping two nuclear bombs on Japan.

Was the only Black in the movie the only one in real life involved with the project? Who was he and what did he do? To answer these and other questions about Blacks and the bomb, we have as our guest, author, lecturer, popular Port of Harlem contributor, and historian of the African diaspora, C.R. Gibbs.

Abubakri II’s Voyage with CR Gibbs

POH talks with CR Gibbs about Abubakri II’s Voyage and why he thinks there is so much interest in the explorer and his journeys. His article on Abubakari and the mystery of his voyage from current day Gambia to current day Brazil remains very popular for those searching the web and landing on our page. After publishing the article in February 2021, we are going to finally revisit the subject audibly.

Note: When answering a question, Gibbs referred to this book: "Mysterious Explorer: Solving the Puzzle of an African Explorer in America - - 180 Years Before Columbus by Dr. Ronald Stewart."
