This Moment Of Reckoning For America

Jan 13, 2021

Chandra Ward is assistant professor of sociology here at UTC - and Jonathan McNair is the Ruth S. Holmberg Professor of American Music. 

Earlier this week, I spoke with them - and with Marcus Ellsworth, the cohost of the Ground Game Georgia podcast, a spoken word artist and an activist here in Chattanooga.
