You're listening to The Red & Black's News & Brews, a weekly recap of Athens and University of Georgia news and a look ahead to some important events.

Today we're with news reporter Savannah Sicurella and Editor in Chief Maggie Holland to discuss a story from last week, "Confronting UGA's history of blackface." We also talk about a protest against discrimination downtown, a community forum on traffic and road conditions and two community artists amping up the DIY scene.
