Welcome back to Hidden History, the educational podcast that delves into history’s hidden files and pulls out the stories that are often omitted from our history books. Hosted by history nerd, Gabrielle Jadotte, and a new guest star every week, this podcast aims to educate people about the often forgotten past.
In the fourth episode of Hidden History, Gabrielle Jadotte and returning guest star, Junior Terrell Spence, investigate the hidden location of Central Avenue, the African American run city block, whose remains are under Perry Harvey Park. This episode provides insight on what it was; who was there, and what it became.
