Episode 1: The Richness of the Black Belt

September 3, 2019

Political scientist Dr. Veronica Womack joins Sarah Smarsh to discuss the richness of rural American culture and community, and how old farming wisdom alongside new technologies can move the Black Belt region forward. Womack is the chief diversity officer and a professor of political science and public administration at Georgia College and State University. Her work in the Black Belt region centers on community development and change: building the human capacity of students, creating curriculum that tells the story of the region, and researching and changing the narrative about the Black Belt. Learn more at TheHomecomers.org and follow the show on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
