Panel led by WFSU's Gina Jordan talks about the videos at the Retro Local Screening held on FAMU's campus.

On October 22nd, we hosted a free screening and presentation of Retro Local. In addition to showcasing a national Retro Report segment on Housing, we took a look at historical issues in our community by examining two stories: the impact of eminent domain on Tallahassee’s Smokey Hollow neighborhood and Florida A&M University’s former hospital, its closure, and the related civil rights struggles that continue today. A panel discussion followed the videos. It was moderated by WFSU’s Gina Jordan, and featured panelists:FAMU SJGC Professor Kenneth Jones, FAMU History Professor Reginald Ellis, and WFSU-FM News Director Lynn Hatter. This video highlights the conversation that happened that evening.
