WPLN presents: The Promise

While it’s not one of our podcasts, I’d still like to take a moment to point out the existence of Nashville Public Radio’s new series The Promise, a limited series release that explores the complicated (and often troubling) issues of gentrification, displacement and a massive undertaking to renovate a housing project.

Embedded above is the first episode that introduces the complexities of Public Housing, it’s history and government defunding that spiraled it into disrepair. On the whole, the topic of the show is largely about race and disparity; a topic that should not shy’ed away from as Nashville continues to explode.
