One of the symbols of the South is the Brown Thrasher, a feisty, territorial bird. The Brown Thrasher is the official State bird of Georgia, and was the inspiration for the name of Atlanta’s former National Hockey League team, the Atlanta Thrashers. The Brown Thrasher was also the inspiration for a Southern video series we are introducing. These videos will be more cultural than political and will deal with many of the issues facing Southerners today. The series will also be a bit more informal than some of our other videos. In an effort to generate cross-over appeal and given the unique nature of the video series we have decided to make a Brown Thrashers website and YouTube channel. Don’t worry – everything posted there will also be posted here on SNN so you won’t miss anything. Our first video (as well as the unedited and slightly longer audio) is below. If y’all like the material please pass it around. It won’t appeal to everyone but could be a good way to introduce some folks to our ideas.
