What Would William Apess Do?

In this week’s show we talk to Drew Lopenzina about a man who’s been called the Native American Frederick Douglass. Drew writes a blog called What Would William Apess Do?, dedicated to–you guessed it–all things William Apess. He’s hoping to spread Apess’s message of resistance and hopes readers will use some of the Native American leader’s writings as a guide in their own lives. Plus, there’s a link to raise funds for a historical marker to be erected in Colrain, Massachusetts commemorating the place where Apess was born in 1798.
