As the country prepared this month to celebrate Juneteenth National Independence Day, Collectiveffort's Jamel Mosely spent time getting to know Alice Green, Barbara Smith and Earl Thorpe, three trailblazing Black elders in the Capital Region. His filmed interviews became part of Hearst's Lift Every Voice project, which shared stories, experiences and reflections on being Black in America.
On this episode of The Eagle, Mosely talks about his vision for the project, and what he learned from the trio of icons.
Also on this episode, Massarah Mikati and Eduardo Medina discuss more of their work on A City Divided, a reporting series delving into how redlining in Albany splintered the city along racial lines that have endured for decades.
