Program in Journalism
Come listen to the launch of Jewel of the Delta, a nine-part audio documentary about Mound Bayou, Mississippi, the oldest all-black town in America. The podcast is written and produced by the students of JRN 450: Audio Journalism, taught by Joe Richman, founder and executive producer of Radio Diaries and a visiting Ferris Professor of Journalism. As part of their course, the group traveled to the Deep South during fall break to report on the historic town founded by formerly enslaved men and women just after the end of the Civil War.
