Eastern Standard Preview for September 8, 2022

Eastern Standard

On this week’s Eastern Standard: What can public records tell us about the 19th century slave trade - and the enslaved - of Lexington, Kentucky? We’re about to find out. It’s Dr. Gerald Smith’s focus for the latest in our series on racial justice and equality. | We have details of an effort to bring parents, teachers and businesses onto the same wavelength to strengthen public education | An update on happenings in the hemp industry, including the emergence of “adult use” products such as Delta 8 | And, information on three upcoming events: The Viva Mexico Festival in Lexington, The Wilmore Storytelling Festival, and the Appalachian Big Ideas Festival in Hazard.

Tom Martin is the host of Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
