Freedom Isn’t Free

The Waters and Harvey Show logo

Freedom Isn’t Free – Darin Waters and Marcus Harvey remember John Lewis who believed that an ongoing struggle is needed to assure the success of the civil rights movement.  They also return to issues raised in a recent conversation with Dr. William Turner whose career was dedicated to an understanding and appreciation of Southern Appalachia’s deep African American history. One of those is the shared experience of generational poverty in both Black and white communities in the region.
