We talk about Shades Cahaba a lot on this podcast for obvious reasons. With a school that taught grades 1-12 you get a little tunnel vision and start to think this is all there was in Homewood. Not true. There were other schools and we are going to talk about a few of those on this episode of the Shades Cahaba Oral History Project.
A special thanks to author Sheryl Summe for doing all the hard work in her book “Homewood: Life of a City.” I really leaned on the information in the book for this episode and it wouldn’t have happened without it. I left out a ton of information.
If you can get your hands on a copy of the book, take a deep dive and read it from front to back. I guarantee you that you will learn some things you didn’t know.
