Progressive blogger Pamela Powers from Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and Blog for Arizona, on “What can the Oberlin Rescuers tell us about today’s Civil Rights struggle?”

One response to “Pam Powers from PDA and Blog for Arizona @ DGT

  1. AZ Blue Meanie and I attended this uplifting talk by Pam at DGT, about the 1858 incident in Oberlin, Ohio involving Pam’s ancestors the Lymans and others who helped the “underground railroad” and esp. fugitive slave John Price. A group of Oberlin Rescuers (all men) freed Price, who had been taken from Oberlin to Wellington, Ohio under federal guard, to be returned to slavehood in Kentucky. (Price had been living as a free man in Oberlin, & eventually escaped to Canada). Pam compared that action to today’s economic/low wage injustices, undocumented workers from the South, academic freedom, challenges to the U.S. Constitution, solidarity among activists, and good communication. Stay tuned as she taped her talk and will post it later online, with photos.
