For months after three white men chased Ahmaud Arbery to his death, Georgia of 2020 looked disconcertingly like Georgia of 1950. This is the story of the long arc of injustice in the American South -- and of the persistence that brought worldwide attention to coastal Georgia. Prior seasons tell the story of Isaiah Nixon, who was killed for voting in 1948 (season one), and A.C. Hall, who police shot in the back in 1962 because they mistakenly thought he was a thief (season two). Hosted by Hank Klibanoff and produced by WABE.

I am a white woman in my 50’s and there isn’t an episode or season that I haven’t cried my way through the podcast. Please know that there are so many people that do care and want justice. To think that Season 3 would involve a real time lynching of an innocent 25 year old black man by three over zealous racist white men is appalling!

I cant recommend this podcast enough. I think it should be required listening for anyone in law enforcement, the court system, or politics. I love the host Hank Klibanof who is so professional it’s almost miraculous. Thank you for this. Thank you to the students who do the hard work and you showing them what a difference one person can have on future generations and healing the past.

Ahmaud Arbery

I’ve listened to all of HK’s podcasts of Buried Truths. This recent one is by far the one that stings the most...it is 2020 and here we are, the same injustice happening. I’ve been in tears during most of the episodes; feeling every emotion possible: anger, frustration, distress, sadness...
HK has an incredible way of telling the facts, knowledge, and truth in a manner of story telling that captivates the listener. Please, please continue this podcast!

Thank you!

This is an excellent podcast. It breaks my heart to listen to the story of the death of the young man. Killing our young black boys and men. Painful and sad... and more.
