Today’s show highlights a North Carolinian’s quest for freedom, and we’ll also find out about crafting a perfect getaway this fall. Finally, in honor of Veterans Day, we visit with the state’s military archivist, and head over to the State Capitol to find out what is planned there to honor those who serve.
First up, Fay Mitchell visits with Jean Fagan Yellin, the editor of the just published Harriet Jacobs Family papers (:45). Historic Edenton will host a literary event November 22 to celebrate the publication of the papers of the escaped slave, abolitionist and writer. Next, David Potorti, of the North Carolina Arts Council, shares some travel tips, all with a craft theme (5:04). November 11 is the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I – Armistice Day – which later became known as Veterans Day. Si Harrington, military archivist for the Department of Cultural Resources, talks about the importance of interviewing veterans about the time in service (11:26).
