On Second Thought For Wednesday, June 19, 2019

She took her columns for Teen Vogue seriously, and now she’s taking her skills to NPR.  On Second Thought met Isabella Sarmiento Gomez,  a new NPR Kroc Fellow from Atlanta.

Each year hundreds of people hike the Appalachian Trail, which starts right here in Georgia. This year, two married writers are doing them. We followed up with them for another audio check in along their journey.


Children’s books are high culture at Atlanta’s High Museum. We explored Maira Kalman’s new exhibition in this interview with the author and illustrator.

 

It’s Juneteenth, a day that celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S. On Second Thought explored its history and traditions with historian and African studies professor Daina Ramey Berry.
