New World A’ Coming (1944 - 1957)
Broadcast on New York radio station WMCA, this show was based on the work of nationally-known black journalist Roi Ottley. New World A’ Coming was frequently narrated by African-American actor Canada Lee, and showcased the work of other leading black artists (Duke Ellington wrote the theme song). A powerful and politically incisive program that aired political and racial issues in the US Military and on the home front.

The producers urged people to buy war bonds and support the WWII war against Nazi tyranny. Promoting war bonds represented buying a stake in our democracy. New World A-Coming is an exceptional radio show voicing the concerns of 1940s America and highlighting the problems, successes, hopes, and contributions of African-American life.
