Connecting immigration and slavery

We talk about the travesty of ICE detention centers.

Elizabeth connects the sanctuary city issue with the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, digging in deep on the Anthony Burns incident--a flashpoint in the abolitionist struggle.

Andy talks immigrant narratives, Zeitoun, and the demand for "literary" stories of assimilation.

Special thanks to listeners Lisa Hinrichsen and Rachael Price for recommending this topic.
