If you don't know who Linda Brent is -- listen to the entire interview. If you DO know who Linda Brent is SHARE this post
Harriet Ann Jacobs (February 11, 1813 March 7, 1897) was an African-American writer who escaped from slavery and was later freed. She became an abolitionist speaker and reformer. Jacobs wrote an autobiography, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, first serialized in a newspaper and published as a book in 1861 under the pseudonym Linda Brent. It was a reworking of the genres of slave narrative and sentimental novel, and was one of the first books to address the struggle for freedom by female slaves, explore their struggles with sexual harassment and abuse, and their effort to protect their roles as women and mothers.
If one were to be beaten or waterboarded to the point of having to say something good about Glenn Beck or suffer more, it would have to be that his research team has done some good work in the past.
This is not about Glenn. It is about the man he interviewed Tim Ballard and in this case the subject matter of History. No matter your opinion of Glenn Beck his history series is really good — yes he has a great research team - a team that he assembled so credit where credit is due. Before a friend sent me the link to this podcast I had never heard of Linda Brent - the fact that Tim Ballard / underground railroad is being interviewed as the subjecf matter expert makes for a great interview / history story. I hope to see many FREEPERS take the time to listen to the entire interview and comment here on the fact that it IS relevant today.
