Crossings|the Refugee Experience in America

12 EpisodesProduced by Vincent HostakWebsite

Refugee resettlement and the journey toward it is an experience largely misunderstood in the US. With this podcast we seek to improve our listeners' cultural competence through the personal stories from refugees and the innovative organizations and programs serving them.


Episode 12 Keep Going-Harriet Tubman on her 200th Birthday

In this March 2022 episode we celebrate the life of Harriet Tubman during the month of her 200th birthday. Tubman was, of course, one of the most prominent “conductors” on the Underground Railroad and a woman who self-emancipated from the bondage of slavery.   But she was also the first American woman to lead a major military operation in wartime (as a volunteer), a nurse/healer, and recruited black soldiers for the Union war effort. She led humanitarian efforts to bring freedom seekers health services at Fort Monroe.  These African Americans were among the Civil War's refugees who found themselves at a site known as "Freedom's Fortress." We hear the voices of Harriet Tubman through Pauletta Jackson and Frederick Douglass through Isaac Points.  Writer: Janice Pugh.  Producers:  Vincent Hostak and Janice Pugh. With thanks to our additional Producer: Susan Billotte.
