Women's Heart Health with Murem Sharpe

Erased Athens: Baldwin, Linnentown

This is a special episode and a special format - we welcome Hattie Whitehead, Linda Davis and Joey Carter to the studio to have an in-depth discussion on the topic of the erased African American history of Athens by focusing on two particular locations and incidents - the African American cemetery under the current UGA Baldwin Hall and the African American neighborhood of Linnentown, which was condemned under "urban renewal" for UGA dorm halls. After a recounting from Hattie Whitehead, former resident of Linnentown, and Linda Davis, Joey Carter and I discuss the importance of reparations and making the community whole after this kind of generational wealth loss. These are somber and cautionary stories. Unfortunately they are not the only ones. This is an episode not to miss but also to share. Please help us spread the work.
