Show Notes

Every year, descendants of both enslaved people and slave owners come together for a family reunion. The darker side of their shared past remains hidden underneath the celebrations and pleasantries. Until one year, when Ever Lee Hairston says two words that break decades of silence. To commemorate our 1 year anniversary, we’ll be playing the hits, as determined by you, all month. The people voted, and here we have it— the final installment of Best of The Nod series, "The Hairstons" Parts 1 &2.

We'll be back next week with a NEW episode!

Music in this episode from: Tyler Strickland, Bobby Lord, Golden Gram, Jupyter, Takstar
and Nick From Islands.
