The story of Charlottesville.

A podcast about August 12 — and the history behind it.

On August 12, 2017, the city of Charlottesville became a hashtag. For most of the country — and the world — the harrowing events of the day seemed to explode out of nowhere, a progressive southern college town suddenly overrun with Neo-Nazis and modern-day white nationalists. 

 

But before August 12, there was August 11. And July 8. And May 13. And decades — centuries — of trauma, resistance, and a fight over which stories get told, and which get forgotten. 

 

"A12" recovers that history in a searching attempt to answer the question "Why Charlottesville?"
