African American Life Philadelphia C-Span.org July 2017

Judith Giesberg, a professor from Villa Nova, talks about transportation segregation, diaries revealing everyday life and ads looking for lost family members due to slavery. The ads are particularly relevant since John Turner's grandfather, John Jack Johnson, looked for all of his missing children after slavery. He found them all except for Rufus. She talks about the role of the church in disseminating the information.
