A Postcard From Savannah's Historic First African Baptist Church

Savannah’s NAACP chapter celebrated its centennial this fall at the historic First African Baptist Church. The church was also honored by the Georgia Historical Society earlier this year for its extensive role in African-American history and the civil rights movement, from hiding people on the underground railroad, to being the site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s first public speech in 1944. GPB’s Ryan McFadin went to a Sunday service, and sent back an audio postcard.

On Second Thought For Tuesday, November 21, 2017

UGA has a great football team this year. They’re ranked number seven in the country -- after a spell in first. But it’s not all good news. UGA rates dead last in the Southeastern Conference when it comes to graduation success rates for student athletes – all while the university’s overall student graduation rates are way up. Eric Kelderman is Senior Reporter for the Chronicle of Higher Education. Also with us is Professor of Sports Journalism at UGA, Vicki Michaelis. Beverly Daniel Tatum leads frank conversations about race. Back in 1997, the former Spelman College President wrote a book called, “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” Now, she’s updated the text.

Savannah Community Groups Urge City, County To Keep Joint Police Department

As Chatham County and the City of Savannah get ready to separate their joint police department, some community groups are pushing to keep the force together. Several groups spoke out against the separation Monday, including the Young Democrats and Republicans, and the National Action Network. Antwan Lang of the Savannah Jaycees said his group has met with city and county leaders, some of whom he said are not putting public safety first. “Some of our elected officials have adopted a philosophy of obstructionism, stemming from politics, feelings of disrespect from either party, or worse: ego,” he said. Lang said it’s not too late to save the police merger, which ends February 1. He said he's worried that separate police departments will have a harder time addressing gangs and violence.

How Should Atlanta Deal With Traffic And Confederate Monuments?

We start with a conversation about transportation. Last week, local mayors and city leaders met to discuss transit and the I-285 expansion. Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul was at that meeting and tells us what he heard. Next, GPB's Stephen Fowler joins us to talk about what he's learned about Atlantans' attitudes towards a particular ode to the Confederacy: Confederate Avenue. Then, Roy Moore's wife has another message to the media and mainstream Republicans: her husband is here to stay. And if he wins, Johnny Isakson will play a role in how Moore is received when he gets to Capitol Hill. Plus, the partisan fight over the GOP tax bill heats up as it moves forward in both chambers. Now the White House says it's willing to remove a provision that both sides saw as a hindrance to final passage. The state of Georgia sunk more than $200 million in public money into building the Georgia Dome less than 30 years ago. This morning, it was gone in a matter of seconds. We'll look at the Dome's
