Season 1 tells the story of Isaiah Nixon, a father of six who, in 1948, exercised his right to vote and paid with his life. Isaiah’s story provides insight into voter suppression, disenfranchisement, and much more.

Season 2 tells the story of A.C. Hall, a black teenager who was mistakenly identified as a gun thief in 1962, Macon, Georgia. Through A.C.’s story, host Hank Klibanoff examines police privilege, racial conditioning, community activism, and much more.

Season 3 investigates the 2020 killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and reveals details about the case that are at once both disheartening and inspiring.

Buried Truths has been widely recognized for its deep, historical understanding, intensive research, and moving storytelling – winning the Peabody Award, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Journalism Award, Edward R. Murrow Award and a Webby honoree. Lesson plans based on the podcast received the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) Award.
