URBAN-15's Hidden Histories is a monthly online series featuring archived interviews, performances, films and discussions that focus on the community and its various forms of art. The nonprofit aims to discover and protect the veiled sites, people and stories that contribute to the Alamo City's inspiring culture.

The installment will also include a segment showcasing the upcoming Best of Josiah Media Festival, including commentary from fest manager Jonathan Anderson.

The episode will be available Monday evening through URBAN-15's website live stream. It will also be available on the organization's Youtube channel.
