Episode Description:

The history of the Blackstone Valley is America’s story: it is deep, fascinating and complex. No where does the complexity of the story emerge with more power than in dealing with textile mills, slavery (for those hands that picked the cotton were enslaved hands), abolitionist and the underground railroad and all that complexity that is America’s story plays out here in the Blackstone Valley. With NPS Chief Historian Edwin Bearss providing a context and sister National Park Service Site, Boston African American NHS (Ranger Bernadette Williams & Charles Taylor), the Asa Waters Mansion in Millbury (Grace LaFlash & Bob White) and the Liberty Farm home of Abby Kelly Foster & Stephen Foster as key places, the story of the anti-slavery movement comes alive here in the Valley (Ranger Jack Whittaker, Walt Stockwell & Ray Boswell).
