Show Notes

In E38 we hear about young Delia Green and her sad end.  Then to wrap up Black History Month and move into Women's History Month, I tell the story of Queen Bess the very first Female, African American & Native American pilot.

Look for us on social media for pics and show updates.  Info to come about a t-shirt contest so stick around for that.  If you want to get in touch and aren't a social media type you can email the show at loreofthesouth@gmail.com

Special thank you to Enocha Edenfield for her help in finding sources about Delia Green.  Look for Enocha on all Social Media platforms she's journalist in Savannah and is now also a tour guide.
