This episode we have our MOST favorite guests of all time on the pod … our moms! Danielle’s mom prefers stories from the way back machine, so that’s exactly what we did! Our moms also don’t like it when we swear (same for the person who left us a 1 star review on Apple) so this will be our first curse-free episode!
Celia was a slave that was sold to Robert Newsom when she was 14 years old. The day she returned to the property, was the first day she was sexually assaulted by the slave owner. For years she endured the abuse until one day she fought back. Celia was then put on trial for killing Mr. Newsom. The trial started the conversation of how slaves were only considered property until they were criminals and then could be found guilty of breaking the law. Content Warning: Slavery, Discussion of Lynching, and Sexual Assault.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/crimeandroses/support
