Abolitionist Frederick Douglass And His Talks In The Mountain State, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we hear from a historian about the connection between the Mountain State and slavery abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Also, in this show, hunger is a problem in West Virginia, but recent contributions to local food banks have helped during what is normally a down time for donations, and we look at why coal mine deaths have been on the rise.
