DON’T MISS this powerful, 12-minute Storycorps podcast – The Leesburg Stockade Girls

A dramatic story that showcases the deep resiliency of children. And the merciless ugliness of racists.

Only by resurfacing, examining, and discussing stories like this from Georgia will we ever get past the dark shadow racism still casts over the United States.

This offering is part of NPR’s Storycorps series on reunions. Thanks, Storycorps. And thanks especially to the dozen victims who came forward, after 50 years, to relive their stories. LISTEN.
