A magnificent story of a young Black women's journey through the Underground Railroad. Her story confronts the nature of slavery, with each stop along her way revealing a different aspect of bondage and resistance. Haunting and deeply human, the story conveys both the horrors of bondage and the humanity of those who lived it. On this episode, we discuss the importance of Colson Whitehead's novel as a learning tool with Chicago writer and sociologist, Eve Ewing.
