With the death of blueswoman Beverly Watkins earlier this month, WUGA’s Jimmy Sanders, host of “Music from High Cotton,” offers us a remembrance. 

This week on Athens News Matters, hear WUGA's panel of commentators discuss the Bethel Homes redevelopment, last week's officer-involved shooting and concerns about the Board of Elections. Also hear reports on a local kombucha brewery, a UGA professor's work with the Gullah Geechee community on Sapelo Island and the struggles of pregnant women in the workplace. 

Plus, a remembrance of blueswoman Beverly Watkins and a look at the memorabilia of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.
