For this ‘capstone’ episode, we’re and I talk about some of the most important takeaways from this series, ‘Fearfully, she walked the streets.’
We consider the nuances of some of the articles we looked at, and we praise the journalistic efforts that went into bringing the story to masses not just the first time, as it was happening, but also decades later when it was ready to be re-examined.
A tremendous thank you to the staff of the Greensboro News & Record, especially Managing Editor, Jennifer Fernandez and reporters Nancy McLaughlin and Lorraine Ahearn.
