Bring It On! – September 9, 2013

Play

William Hosea and Bev Smith welcome B.I.O. contributors Gladys DeVane and Liz Mitchell to the show.

PART ONE
Although Indiana law clearly prohibited slavery, indentured servitude, a different kind of slavery, was a common practice within Indiana territory during the early years of statehood. Three Indiana women known to petition the Indiana Supreme court for release from indentured agreements were Mary Bateman Clark, Polly Strong and a woman only known as “Elizabeth”.

Long-time B.I.O. contributors Gladys DeVane and Liz Mitchell both have done research on the topic of Indiana indentured servants, and come on the show to share their information with Bev and William

PART TWO
Headline news and local calendar events of interest to the African-American community.
