It provides a window into the community of Black students at the University of Missouri-Columbia and the impact of the Concerned Student 1950 movement. In this episode, we hear about the process of hosting and producing the documentary from someone that you already know but are about to get a whole lot more familiar with: Lauren Brown, co-host and producer for We Live Here.
