From Slavery to Freedom – Tom Calarco
About This Show
Are you interested in history? Do stories of people fighting for freedom fascinate you? Then join us on From Slavery to Freedom, as we explore the mysteries of the Underground Railroad and the legacies of the Civil War. Why you may ask is this important today? In fact, it has never been more important. During a time when our personal freedoms are eroding, the lengths to which human beings will go to restrict the freedom of others and the remarkable stories of those who struggled against overwhelming odds to gain their freedom can inspire us in these troubling times. Remember, though we have a natural right to our personal freedoms, their protection requires constant vigilance.
