Mutter D. Evans : Making History and Talking About It

Mutter D. Evans, left, made history by becoming the youngest black and second African American woman to own a broadcast property in America (WAAA-AM). Mütter Evans grew up in the late 50’s in rural eastern North Carolina. She graduated from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina with a journalism degree. At the age of 25, she became the owner of WAAA-AM radio, making her the youngest owner of a broadcast station in the country.

Wake Forest University radio station WFDD (88.5) interviewed Ms. Evans on the program "Voices & Viewpoints." Mutter Evans is also featured in the book "Jewels," along with Nikki Giovanni, Ruby Dee, Hattie Winston and Marian Wright Edelman. Jewels is a collaborative effort by former Winston-Salem resident Michael Cunningham and Connie Briscoe. It’s now available nationally in bookstores.
