The popular narrative about the Civil War is white men in the North freed enslaved people in the South. But a podcast from Virginia Public Media tells a deeper story. “Seizing Freedom” spotlights Black Americans who fought for, designed and defined their own freedom. Our guests are Kelly Jones, a freelance member of the podcast development team with Virginia Public Media, and Ronald Young Jr., an independent audio producer responsible for casting and directing the voice actors in the series. “Seizing Freedom” just launched its second season.
