Live Podcast “Icarus in Heels and Fur”

When: February 22, 6:30 PM

What: Live podcast recording to include local luminaries, February 22, 2024.

Where: 1900 E. 12th Street (NE corner of 12 and Chicon)
As before, we will set our stage in one of the properties once owned by our central character, Vera Barton, in the latest in our series of stories about the Chestnut neighborhood. An incredible woman who inherited and expanded the entertainment corner at 12th and Chicon, until her ambition was cut short. The unsolved murder of Vera Barton will be the subject of an exciting evening of local history and speculation. Our panel will include (and hopefully more as we get confirmations) DA Jose Garza, who helped immeasurably by opening the 1940 DA files on the case, City Manager Natasha Harper-Madison, author Scott Henson, and Mr. Nelson Linder to discuss the incomparable Arthur DeWitty and his role as journalist, civil rights leader and legal advocate in this case.
