    Maddie Speaks "It's Not Over"

    Maddie Speaks "It's Not Over"

    Maddie – an African-American woman living with her family in New Hanover County – is part of the American middle-class. But, as we talk, you’ll hear the reality of her every day from just making rent to overcoming systemic racism. The hope is these conversations will entertain and inform and give you another perspective to consider when you look at our community.

    This is community voice. My name is Kevin Maurer, director of community engagement for the Cape Fear Collective. In this episode, I’m talking to Terri Everett, a Wilmington resident and write-in candidate for the 7th Congressional District. Before retiring to the Cape Fear, she worked in the intelligence community. This podcast came after Terri wrote an email about her upbringing. She agreed to sit down and talk about growing up in a segregated society, the daily stresses of being Black in America and how JFK inspired her to a career in public service.
