  Dr. Heather Andrea Williams of Pennsylvania State University joins Dr. Walter Edgar for another "Conversation on the Civil War, 1865." The subject: emancipation and freedom. Williams is one of the world’s leading historians of the experience of slavery in the 19th century. Her award-winning first book, Self-Taught: African-American Education in Slavery and Freedom (University of North Carolina Press, 2005), argued that education was inseparable from the fight against slavery.
