The Waters and Harvey Show logo

In this episode of The Waters & Harvey Show, we talk about forgotten history, and why it gets forgotten. Our co-host Dr. Darin Waters helped reclaim a piece of Asheville's forgotten history when he and Citizen Times reporter Joel Burgess went looking for the grave of the city's first Black elected official. Hear the story of Newton Shepard and the quest to find where he's buried in Riverside Cemetery in this episode.
