In this conversation community activist Amanda Hollowell and I talk about growing up black in predominantly white communities, her visit to the Civil Rights Museum in Atlanta, and the necessity of organ donation from communities of color.

A Savannah resident, she is an active advocate for organ donation and women’s rights. She has an extensive volunteer career that intersects technology, health, politics and culture.

To date, her greatest accomplishment is being the mother of her son, Joah Cash.
