From Slavery to Freedom

From Slavery to Freedom – Interview with John Brown scholar Jean Libby

On this show, which is part one of two shows about John Brown and Harpers Ferry, Libby will tell us of the events leading up to and during the raid at Harpers Ferry. I also will report on the recent Network to Freedom conference held in St. Augustine, Florida, which reported on recent research about the Seminole Wars in Florida and the numerous slave migrations to Florida, the Caribbean, and Texas.
