Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Where would Frederick Douglass stand on today's struggle for immigrant rights? How would the former fugitive from slavery relate to the people without papers who make our restaurants, dairies, and country run today?

This episode takes a close look at the "Hemispheric Douglass" and his thinking on Latin America and migration.

We speak with Brown University Professor Juliet Hooker about Douglass's stance on African American emigration to Central America; US relations with Haiti and the Caribbean; and his defense of migration as a universal human right.

We hear from NYC Councilmember Jumaane Williams on activism, electoral politics, and the fight for immigrant rights downstate.

And we speak with Carly Fox at the Worker Justice Center about the challenges facing undocumented workers in rural New York.
