SLHour: The Real Uncle Tom

June 23, 2018
The name Josiah Henson probably doesn’t mean much to you. This week, author and film maker Jared Brock tells us about the former slave whose life story inspired Uncle Tom’s Cabin and possibly ignited the Civil War; Gillian Kantor learns something new from her kids; Billy has a question about the Sign of the Cross, and we meet singer/songwriter, Corrie-Marie.
