A Tale of Two Towns

Season 2 | Episode 1

Black and white. Charlottesville and UVa. Townies and Students. Following the August 12th white supremacist march in Charlottesville, we take a step back from our global perspective to talk about race relations in Charlottesville from both a historical and modern perspective. Furthermore, we sit down with a local Black Lives Matter activist and discuss the disconnect between UVa, its students and the community around us, and what students can do moving forward.

Hosted by Niko Marcich. Research by Katya Sankow, Tyler Hinkle and Balthazar Merrin.

Produced by Geoff Keating and Niko Marcich.

Special guest: Leslie M. Scott-Jones
