Shemekia Copeland returns to eTown for her second visit, in this (first time aired!) new eTown episode. As an award-winning vocalist (daughter of famous jazzer Johnny Copeland), Shemekia started recording in 1998 at the age of 18 and is recognized as one of the most talented artists in today’s blues and roots scene. Also joining us is Kelsey Waldon, a gifted and seasoned American country singer and songwriter. And Catherine Coleman Flowers, a recent MacArthur Fellow, is the author of new book called “Waste: One Woman’s Fight Against America’s Dirty Secret.” She’ll speak with Nick about her efforts to bring attention to failing water and waste sanitati on infrastructure in rural areas, perpetuating health problems and economic injustice.
