SEASON 1: EPISODE 36

Ground Truth

In This Episode 

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.

On this episode, we pulled census tract data and compared and contrasted what the numbers say and what Maddie saw on the ground.

Don’t miss the rest of the conversation:
