Author Zetta Elliott, WWW.ZettatElliot.com thank you for giving The Gist of Freedom another great interview. The Teaching Tips are appreciated as well! Zetta -"Yesterday at the African Burial Ground National Monument we had a fantastic conversation with Ranger Cyrus Forman about Catherine Ferguson, a formerly enslaved woman who founded the first Sunday School in NYC and adopted more than 40 orphans, black and white, to save them from the streets; she also knew from experience the challenges faced by unwed mothers and so worked to save them from scorn. Ferguson lived just a few blocks from where I teach (Warren Street), and I canâ€™t wait for my students to find out about NYâ€™s rich history when we visit the AFBG as a class this week.
Tomorrow I meet with the PR department at my college; thereâ€™s a banner on the BMCC website announcing the launch of Ship of Souls at the AFBG next Saturday. Iâ€™m ordering the cake todayâ€”stop by and have a" slice!http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thegistoffreedom/2012/02/26/author-zetta-elliot-ship-of-souls
