Episode 10: “OHIO v. SLAVERY” (Underground Railroad) is HERE! CLICK TO LISTEN


Episode 10: “Ohio v. Slavery” (the Underground Railroad). Alex looks at the central role of Ohio in the Underground Railroad and the abolition movement to defeat African American slavery and the Fugitive Slave Act in the mid-19th century. We interview Mary Oellerman of the Kelton House, a “station” on the UGRR, in Columbus. (www.keltonhouse.com). Alex travels to the College of Wooster to discuss the UGRR in Northeast Ohio with Hope Nelson, a senior history major at Alex’s alma mater. Learn how Ohioans fought against the national evil of slavery and the bravery of thousands of runaway slaves that traveled through the Buckeye State to freedom.  We record live from the historic Kelton House and also discuss historic preservation with Sarah Marsom. Marsom, of the Young Ohio Preservationalists, joins the show (40:00) to discuss the YOP’s Rust Belt Takeover weekend in Columbus, OH from April 27-29, 2018.
