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 them in this episode of the Shades Cahaba Oral History Project.

A special thanks to author Sheryl Summe for 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, dive in and read it from front to back. I guarantee you will learn some things you didn’t know.
