    In addition to BUZZ, creator Michael Hemphill also works for the nonprofit Friends of the Blue Ridge, which recently introduced him to the multi-talented Addie Levy.
    Addie headlined Friends of the Blue Ridge’s’ ON THE RISE concerts featuring up-and-coming Bluegrass sensations. After one concert, Addie shared that she’d formed a Nashville-based trio called Domino, and hoped to find a place to perform in Roanoke, Va., on April 14.
    Well, Michael couldn’t pass up the opportunity to provide some buzz so he reached out to the Taubman Museum of Art, which graciously agreed to host a free concert on Sunday, April 14, 2 p.m. 

    Enjoy this conversation with — and some music by — Addie Levy, Cole Ritter and Luca Chiappara who make up the trio Domino.

    The African American communities that urban renewal killed

    The African American communities that urban renewal killed

    There’s a lot of debate surrounding the legacy of slavery and segregation. Some may even question whether there’s still active racism.

    But if you happen to buzz down to Roanoke’s Taubman Museum of Art or Harrison Museum of African American Culture, you can see how discriminatory real estate practices from the past continue to impact Black Americans today. And that is due to a remarkable exhibit that both nonprofit museums are co-hosting: David Ramey: Gainsboro Road and Beyond.

    Buzz4Good creator Michael Hemphill chats with the curators of the exhibit, and the artist's son who has dedicated his life to sharing his father's legacy.

    The United States has more than 1.5 million nonprofits — from homeless shelters, food banks and rescue squads to children’s choirs, science museums and animal refuges — that employ one out of every 10 Americans. Like any company, nonprofits have salaries and bills to pay, a budget to balance. They require money. And if enough people don’t know about them, don’t believe in them, don’t support them — in short, if they lack BUZZ — they suffer and die.

    The Nonprofit TimeBank: Earning interest in connection

    The Nonprofit TimeBank: Earning interest in connection

    We’re often told that time is money. And in our economy, we value some people’s time more than others. Try paying an attorney or pro athlete the same as a teacher or artist.
    But in the New River Valley of Virginia, there’s a nonprofit that values everyone’s time equally, regardless of their skills or education or expertise, as a way of building community and fostering human connection. The hour it takes John Smith to chop up a tree can earn him a hour of social media training from Julia Thomas ... or an hour-long bourbon tasting from Jack Wilson.

    How – and why – does this all work? On today’s show, Buzz4Good creator Michael Hemphill shares some time with Lisa Garcia of the New River Valley Time Bank.

    Michael also shares stories from the newest BUZZ television episode starring Salem Area Ecumenical Ministries and promotes the nonprofit fundraiser Shamrock Hill Run.

    Creating ArtSpace in Roanoke, Virginia

    Creating ArtSpace in Roanoke, Virginia

    For Roanoke, Virginia entrepreneur and philanthropist Ed Walker, economic development is as much about building community as it is building business.

    Walker's latest project is his most ambitious ... and the most transformative in Roanoke's recent history: revitalizing an old 100-acre site comprising 20+ buildings totaling a million square feet just 1.5 miles from downtown into Riverdale.

    On today's Buzz4Good, creator Michael Hemphill talks to Amy McGinnis, who is part of Walker's team working to redevelop Riverdale. Part of her work involves recruiting the Minneapolis-based nonprofit ArtSpace to transform part of the property into affordable housing and studios for arts-friendly businesses.

    Her team hopes ArtSpace will select Riverdale as its first location in Virginia.

    Truth is Marching On: A nonprofit’s ongoing fight against the Confederacy

    Truth is Marching On: A nonprofit’s ongoing fight against the Confederacy

    "It's always been like a slap in the face," says Glenna Moore about the Confederate soldier statue in front of the Franklin County, Virginia courthouse.

    In honor of Black History Month, BUZZ creator Michael Hemphill talks with Moore and Cathie Cummins of the local NAACP, who have fought county officials in vain for years to remove the statue.

    Now they've changed battlefield tactics and are applying for funding from a "Monuments Across Appalachian Virginia" grant that Virginia Tech is coordinating with money from the Mellon Foundation. If successful, the NAACP chapter will create new monuments to honor the 70 African-Americans born in Franklin County who served in the Union Army during the Civil War ... soldiers fighting not just for their country but for their freedom.
