Slavery, Freedom, & The Unsung Heroes Of The Underground Railroad | Scott Shane Finneran's Wake

    • Society & Culture

Scott Shane is a reporter, a research fellow, a lecturer, and an author. 

His latest book, Flee North, tells the story of the two men responsible for freeing hundreds of enslaved people and establishing the Underground Railroad: Thomas Smallwood and Charles Turner Torrey. 

In this episode, Scott and I discuss: 

Thomas Smallwood; Charles Turner Torrey; Frederick Douglass; Harriet Tubman; Escaping from Enslavement; The Middle Passage from Africa; The Origin of the Underground Railroad; What the Underground Railroad was all about; The Domestic Slavetrade v. The International Slavetrade; The centrality of Baltimore and its role in the slavetrade; The Infamous Hope Slatter; The Deep South; Tobacco and Cotton; The Border States; Antebellum America; Crabs and Oysters; George Floyd; Racism in modern America…

And MUCH More! 

I sincerely hope that you enjoy this conversation. If you do, be sure to give it a “thumbs-UP” and share it with a friend! (Oh–and, while you’re at it, subscribe to this channel, you handsome devils and dames!)
