From Slavery to Freedom – 042312

This week’s guest is Peter Michael, founder of the only national publication devoted to the Underground Railroad, the Underground Railroad Free Press. We discuss why the Underground Railroad is such an important part of our history and the role the Free Press plays in promoting it. Michael also talks about his new book about John Hanson, the first president of the United States when it was still under the rule of the Articles of Confederation.
