Behind the Storytelling–Buried Truths, S4: Race & Rage in Terrible Terrell
To commemorate the February 2023 premiere of its Peabody Award–winning podcast “Buried Truths, Season 4: Race & Rage in Terrible Terrell,” WABE Studios, along with the National Center of Civil and Human Race and sponsor PNC Bank, is hosting an exclusive and intimate look at the artifacts and images that informed this season’s story of white police in rural Georgia who killed a young Black father for buying a Chevrolet, a flashy new Impala the cops themselves couldn’t afford.
Special guests include series producer and host Hank Klibanoff, writer/producer Richard Halicks, and students from Emory University’s Georgia Civil Rights Cold Cases Project.
ABOUT “BURIED TRUTHS, SEASON 4: RACE & RAGE IN TERRIBLE TERRELL”
Hosted by journalist, professor, and Pulitzer-prize-winning author Hank Klibanoff, “Buried Truths, Season 4: Race & Rage in Terrible Terrell” relies on personal letters, investigative files, case notes, and legal pleadings to bring to life the unjust murders of James Brazier and Willie Countryman, two black men killed without legal cause in 1958 Terrell County, a community deep in southwest Georgia known in the ‘50s for peanuts, cotton and brutal violence against Black people. Or, as the sheriff then termed it, “carrying out the South’s orders.” Subscribe and download on wabe.org or your favorite podcast platform to never miss an episode starting February 22.
