This podcast traces the history of Raymond Medley, better known as Pebbles, who was a celebrated and widely-loved member of the Georgetown community from his birth in 1918 to his death in 1984. We discuss Medley's story as a forgotten Georgetown icon in relation to the slave sale of the GU272 in 1838. In our interviews with Pat McArdle, Richard Cellini, and Professor Maurice Jackson, we learn that Raymond Medley is not what he appears.
