Description

In this episode, Lou reflects on the text of John Brown's 1859 document, "A Declaration of Liberty," which was intended as the official pronouncement of the liberation movement and "guerrilla" state that he intended to establish in the South after staging a political demonstration at Harper's Ferry.  After his movement failed and Brown was taken at Harper's Ferry, his documents were seized and preserved by Virginia authorities, including "A Declaration of Liberty."  Also included is a short response to comments made about Brown during a radio interview by Kate Masur, the author of the new book, Until Justice Be Done: America's First Civil Rights Movement From the Revolution to Reconstruction.  The entire interview, recorded on June 15, 2021 on KPFA 94.1 Radio, is also linked here.   Listeners can view a digital copy of  "A  Declaration of Liberty" here.
