Real Gangstas of Black History: Paul Jennings and The Great Escape

View DescriptionShare


Paul Jennings wrote the first White House memoir; but never took credit for one of his most inspirational adventures. Wypipologist Michael Harriot explains why, and recounts the Great Escape of the Pearl Schooner.

‘It was kind of like, like the Tom Joyner cruise. All the Black people knew about it. None of the wypipo had ever heard about it.’
