13 episodes

These podcasts were created by students in WRIT 242: Stand and Speak: Feminist Rhetorics and Social Change, under the guidance of Professor S. B. Spring, in Fall 2009. In creating these podcasts, students chose to research one anti-slavery reformer within a larger network of what the National Abolition Hall of Fame (NAHOF) describes as “exemplary people from three centuries that have dedicated their lives, efforts, and personal wealth to gain equal rights for all. For the purposes of the Hall of Fame, abolition is recognized as both the legal ending of slavery, or the First Abolition, and the moral ending of discrimination, or the Second Abolition.” The podcasts are narrative translations of each student’s research; both the podcasts and corresponding framed poster exhibits were installed in the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum in Peterboro, NY.
