This episode is part 1 withÂ Ed Peeples, who is an emeritus Professor of VCU, a humanÂ rights activist who grew up in RVA in the 1930â€™s and 1940â€™s and the author ofScalawag: A White Southernâ€™s Journey through Segregation to Human Rights Activist.
This frank discussion on race focusing on PeeplesÂ life includes growing up on Richmondâ€™s south side, playing basketball for VCU, witnessing the sit-in by the Richmond 34, the desegregation of many of Richmondâ€™s eateries, and much more.
Completely unrelated to the rest of the conversation, he brieflyÂ talks about Lady Wonder the Talking Horse. Â If anyone knows anything else more about Lady Wonder, or ever visited Lady Wonder pleaseÂ get in touch with me.
*Within a historical context this episode does include the â€śNâ€ť word.*
