Episode 26: F**k J.K. Rowling

Tina and Hillary cover the Wilmington Massacre of 1898 and the wrongful death of Tyra Hunter.

Tina’s Story
After the Reconstruction, Blacks in Wilmington, North Carolina yielded political power, built thriving businesses, and had a strong local newspaper. But, when Southern Democrats made up of several white supremecists wanted to reclaim Wilmington, it led to the only coup d'etat on American soil.

Hillary’s Story
On August 7, 1995, Tyra Hunter was in the passenger seat of her friend’s car going to work when the car collided with another. But, when EMS workers and medical personnel learned that Tyra was transgendered, they refused to provide life saving medical care highlighting the need for transgendered rights in the United States.
