Virtual Author Interview With Gretchen Sorin
October 9, 2020
On October 9, join host Donna Apidone and author and historian Gretchen Sorin to discuss her new book Driving While Black: African American Travel and the Road to Civil Rights.
Sorin's deeply researched book makes clear the magnitude of injustices and dangers faced by African-Americans while traveling. Pre-emancipation proclamation masters kept slaves confined, and free Black people were regularly stopped, questioned and even kidnapped.
These restrictions and thought processes have carried on since, in varying ways. However, the invention of the car brought in a new era. The symbol of independence to many would allow Black people to hit the open road on a quest for freedom.
