    Racism After Death

    Racism After Death

    In this special Purple Mountain Pods production, "Racism After Death," we explore the concept of white privilege and racism existing long after we've died. Schylar Knox discovered a cemetery in the worst condition she had ever seen. Shocked, she did some research, only to find that this particular cemetery was an African American graveyard and it wasn't the only one of its kind in terrible condition. Does this show that racism can exist even after death? Join us as we explore the story of the Good Citizen's Cemetery and discuss the problem and possible solutions for curing racism after death. 

      Produced by - Cody Hensley 

    Hosts - Schylar Knox and Alex Sharp 

    Original music by - Cody Hensley

    Pardon My Parler

    Pardon My Parler

    When is it ok to turn the other cheek at hypocrisy? Why do we overlook aspects of our social flaws and permit our leaders to commit indisputable acts of division in a country that prides itself on unity?   Join Spark In The Valley as we explore the dirt under the fabric of America’s carpet. It’s a beautiful tapestry of diverse reds, whites, blues, blacks, browns and rainbows that emulate the flag many love so much. Technically according to 4 U.S. Code § 8. Respect for flag, The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise, but that’s another story.   Please enjoy Spark In the Valley Episode 4 - Pardon My Parler

Great podcast

As a fellow Athenian, it’s refreshing to hear a group of people that share similar political view points as my own. We are blue dots in a very red state. Keep up the good work!
