The Escape and Rescue of Jane Johnson and the road to the Civil War. Part 2.
A whole group of abolitionists would stare down imprisonment for charges stemming from the day they pulled Jane Johnson from bondage on the Phildelphia dock. Johnson herself would return to the public spotlight in an amazing display of courage and nobility. In this episode, we will complete the story of two separate legal battles that happened nearly simultaneously. As Passmore Williamson and William Still both fought for justice in different cases related to the rescue of Jane Johnson, their story of sacrifice and courage lit a fire in the hearts of many Northerners and grew the abolitionist cause in a way nobody could have predicted.

The Escape and Rescue of Jane Johnson and the road to the Civil War
This week we tackle a more poignant topic, sharing the amazing story of an escaped enslaved woman named Jane Johnson and the man who risked everything to help her achieve her freedom, one of America’s greatest abolitionists, William Still. The coming months of drama, which would be called “The Jane Johnson Affair” would become an incident that would exemplify the most heroic qualities of the abolition movement directly alongside the cruelty of those defending slavery. And, in the process, the whole country would entrench itself further one one side of the slavery issue or the other, creating an intractable conflict that would only be solved through the brutal and bloody Civil War.

The Big Fix: Major League Baseball's 1919 Chicago Black Sox Scandal. Part 3 finale.
In this last episode of our Big Fix series we are going to travel into the hurricane, following the breaking of the public scandal and the multiple trials that followed. We will look at how the commissioner of baseball came to the decision to punish the players in the harshest way possible, and where it left these eight men after the dust settled. For the eight members of the Chicago Black Sox, the revelation of the truth would lead them into a lifelong fight not to save their careers or salaries, but instead simply to try and salvage their legacies. And no player would struggle more to try and redeem his name on the pages of history than Shoeless Joe Jackson.
