Paul & Mary Liz Stewart on WebTalkRadio re: Underground Railroad .
Founders of the Underground Railroad History Project of the Capital Region in Albany, Paul and Mary Liz Stewart discuss how they became interested in the Underground Railroad and the discoveries they made on the inaugural episode of From Slavery to Freedom, with Tom Calarco, on WebTalkRadio.net.
The Stewarts also discuss what the Railroad was, why it is important today, and the struggle of Americans to live up to the vision of freedom and equality as it was intended in our Constitution, a struggle that continues. They also discuss their annual Underground Railroad conference that is being held this year at Russell Sage College in Troy, April 13-15.
