CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Students at UTC are introducing us to the history of the Big 9 or East MLK Boulevard through a new podcast.
Every city has one, but in every city the history tells a different story. In Downtown Chattanooga, it’s affectionately referred to as the Big 9 or MLK Blvd.
Mayor Andy Berke says, “This is a great project about telling the history of our city. MLK which was once 9th Street is an important cultural corridor and these UTC students have really captured with that and made sure that all of us in Chattanooga can explore it.”
A group of UTC students did the exploring for you to put together a podcast that launches on Tuesday.
The students took on different aspects of the Big 9 story.
