Butler Island Plantation

This week on WCLK's The Local Take I asked historian Hermina Glass Hill to share with us information about HB 906 which will allow the sale of a portion of historic Butler Island to investors who want to open a brewery. 

Saturday morning, February 13 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take, Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I speak with Dr. Kwesi DeGraft-Hanson about his research into The Weeping Time.  Dr. DeGraft-Hanson, a landscape architect who stumbled onto the story of The Weeping Time while exploring and investigating tabby concrete, a building material that uses oyster shells and was used by enslaved people.
