  • It's February, which is officially Black History Month.

  • -(whooping) -And we're celebrating all month

  • with Roy Wood Jr. honoring the unsung heroes of black history

  • in another episode of CP Time.

  • (mellow jazz playing)

  • ♪ ♪

  • Ah. Welcome to CP Time,

  • the only show that's for the culture.

  • Today we'll be discussing black explorers.

  • Now, I know when a lot of people think of explorers,

  • they only think of white people.

  • Like Christopher Columbus,

  • Lewis and Clark,

  • or that twitchy lady that drives the Magic School Bus.

  • But what many people don't know is that black people

  • have also been instrumental in discovering new lands.

  • We just don't get any of the credit.

  • Like how I discovered the Dougie,

  • and no one gave me credit.

  • I was covered in spiders,

  • and I was just trying to get them off me.

  • -(hip-hip playing) -And on my head.

  • (music stops)

  • Our first black explorer

  • is a man by the name of Matthew Henson--

  • the first man to reach the North Pole, in 1908.

  • It was an incredible feat,

  • not just because he discovered the North Pole,

  • but also because he was a black man

  • who wasn't afraid of going head-to-head against winter.

  • The only place I would want to discover

  • is Miami.

  • Party in the city where the heat is on. ♪

  • Another black explorer

  • who doesn't nearly get the credit he deserves

  • was an enslaved man named York.

  • In 1804, he joined Lewis and Clark

  • on their famous expedition across North America,

  • making him the first black man

  • to travel across the U.S. continent.

  • York was a vital part of the expedition.

  • In fact, he was so trusted,

  • he was even given his own gun.

  • Which was a risky move on Lewis and Clark's part:

  • giving a slave a gun.

  • You know what you call a slave with a gun?

  • Master.

  • Interesting fact: after the expedition,

  • York requested his freedom from Clark,

  • but Clark denied him,

  • because he realized that without York,

  • he would just be another white dude lost in the forest...

  • (whispers): like a bitch.

  • And finally,

  • black people weren't just tagging along with white people

  • on these expeditions,

  • they were also making history themselves.

  • Like Abubakri II,

  • the ruler of the Mali empire.

  • In 1311, Abubakri set off on an expedition westward.

  • Eventually, he landed in Brazil.

  • Abubakri met the native tribes there

  • and made peace with them,

  • and even ended up marrying a chief's daughter,

  • a quest that many men know all too well.

  • Traveling to distant lands

  • for new booty.

  • 'Cause them local girls are too familiar.

  • So the next time you think about explorers,

  • remember not to just give credit

  • to white men who discovered places people already lived--

  • Columbus.

  • But also give credit to those of the more melanin persuasion

  • who have explored the world.

  • Like my Uncle Bebo,

  • who, in 1990, traveled across the country

  • searching for the Dairy Queen with the best Oreo Blizzard.

  • And we haven't seen him since.

  • That's why every day I honor my Uncle Bebo

  • my eating one of these.

  • We're gonna miss you, Bebo.

  • (grunts)

  • (grunts)

  • -And I'm back. -(cheering)

  • Well, that's all the time we have for today,

  • I'm Roy Wood Jr., and this has been CP Time.

  • And remember, we're for the culture!

  • Somebody get me some hot tea to balance out this cold.

  • -♪ ♪ -(cheering, applause)

It's February, which is officially Black History Month.
