I’m joined by two local Charlottesville, VA radio talk hosts to discuss the domestic terrorist attack the killed one person and injured 19 others over the weekend in their hometown. They are David Vaughn Straughn, who witnessed the murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer from just feet away, and Leslie Scott-Jones, who was just a few blocks away from the attack.
Leslie Scott-Jones was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she lives with her two children. She co-hosts “Home Grown,” a radio show about local art, on 94.7 WPVC and is the artistic director at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center.
David Vaughn Straughn is a local activist who has lived in Charlottesville for over 20 years. He is a contributing writer for Parle Magazine and Scalawag, and co-hosts “Home Grown” with Scott-Jones.
Finally, this is an op-ed they wrote together for CNN today: http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/14/opinions/what-comes-next-in-charlottesville-scott-jones-straughn-opinion/
