    History & Hydrology w/ Caroline Grego

    On August 9, 2023, the Mika Gadsden for Mayor campaign invited author and environmental historian, Caroline Grego to Charleston to discuss her book, Hurricane Jim Crow. The discussion about this book along with critical contributions from artist/griot, Sara Makeba-Daise, MA and environmental educator/hydrologist Rebecca Fanning helps the public understand our region's response to challenges brought about by the climate crisis.

Masterclass!!!

Mika creates a masterclass on any topic she takes on! Her information is thorough and real, and she works hard to give a fully rounded analysis of the facts about any situation, often uncovering perspectives that the influencers of the mainstream narratives would prefer to keep hidden. Her voice is one that everyone should be listening to!

Bringing History to Present Day

Mika is such a force. This podcast is not just for people in the Charleston area. If you’re looking for a smart, historical, witty, and informative podcast subscribe. Also sign up for her book club because I feel like everyone needs to read the books she suggests.
