A Craft-y Escape

I can’t find a slot for this tale in my plans for the podcast, but it seems rollicking enough to post it here. Project Gutenberg offers various formats of Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom, the tale of a light skinned slave who – posing as a male planter, and her dark skinned husband pretending to be her servant – made a very public escape from slavery. It was a bestseller in its day, and Wikipedia suggests it’s a good read. I’ll add it to the Library

Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom; or, the escape of William and Ellen Craft
