Public Radio Hour "Exploring Huntsville's Civil Rights History' 2/10/22

On the February 10th episode of the Public Radio Hour, we explore the importance of African American history in Huntsville. Dr Beth Patin, director of Rocket City Civil Rights, talks about 'cultural competence' and gives us directions for a cool driving tour of local historic sites. NASA's Acting Chief Historian Brian Odom helps us understand the impact of the civil rights movement on Huntsville's NASA legacy and how it affected Historically Black Colleges and Universities. And Donna Castellano, executive director of the Historic Huntsville Foundation, explores the lives of six women who were part of an early fight for voting rights in Huntsville.
