Saying the Name ★ Betsy Biesenbach's Search to Honor the Lives of Roanoke's Enslaved People (Episode 3.9)
Play • 30 min

Betsy Biesenbach is doing the work of anti-racism as member of the Roanoke Universalist Unitarian Church and as a resident of Raleigh Court. Title searches led her to uncover the names of enslaved people who once lived on the land, and as a result has written a book for grades 3 and up to help parents teach a fuller history of the place to their children.
