In North Carolina, we see friendships being forged in the face of centuries of racism; anti-racist organizing happening at the corner of Plantation and Corporation avenues; and meet a historical political candidate, a Black woman quite literally from the wrong side of the tracks, campaigning to co-govern with her community.
In Alamance County, Down Home North Carolina has been building a multi-racial grassroots movement against white supremacy. George talks to Brigid Flaherty, co-founder of Down Home North Carolina; Sugelema Lynch, a Latinx mother; Pat Rogers, a young white engineer; and Dreama Caldwell, who’s running to serve as Alamance County’s first Black woman Commissioner. For all of them, meeting the left-behind where they are is key to transforming the landscape. And it’s creating a new common identity that Alamance County can be proud of.
This episode features additional music by Jake and Sarah Owen.
