Emory University professor and journalist Hank Klibanoff discusses how he and his team of students researched the events, history and cultural context of the Ahmaud Arbery case going back more than 150 years in our February program at noon on Feb. 2, 2022.
What Klibanoff and his team learned became a seven-part podcast released in 2020 and updated on the one-year anniversary of Arbery death in February and this past fall with episodes covering the trial of the three men convicted in his murder.
The podcast is called “Buried Truths: Season 3: The Ahmaud Arbery Story.”
The “Buried Truths” podcast is produced by WABE (NPR) in Atlanta and is based on research by the Georgia Civil Rights Cold Cases Project at Emory University, both a class and an ongoing historical and journalistic exploration of the Jim Crow South. The podcast has won several awards, including a Peabody Award and a Robert F. Kennedy Award.
