The Founding of AHEPA

Yesterday, Atlanta’s public radio station, WABE, aired a conversation between host Steve Goss and GSU history professor Dr. Clifford Kuhn about the founding of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) right here in Atlanta 93 years ago. Kuhn explains how Greek Americans formed AHEPA in response to the growing threats of racism, xenophobia, and the KKK following World War I.
