This episode is part 1 with¬†Ed Peeples, who is an emeritus Professor of VCU, a human¬†rights activist who grew up in RVA in the 1930’s and 1940’s and the author of Scalawag: A White Southern’s Journey through Segregation to Human Rights Activist.
This frank discussion on race focusing on Peeples¬†life includes growing up on Richmond’s south side, playing basketball for VCU, witnessing the sit-in by the Richmond 34, the desegregation of many of Richmond’s eateries, and much more.
Completely unrelated to the rest of the conversation, he briefly¬†talks about Lady Wonder the Talking Horse. ¬†If anyone knows anything else more about Lady Wonder, or ever visited Lady Wonder please¬†get in touch with me.
