Summary
Father Boniface Hardin and Sister Jane host this session and tell the story of the kidnapping of Horace Bell, the son of a New Albany, Indiana family that was active in the underground railroad. His kidnap by Kentucky officials in 1858 sparked discussions of state rights and the possibility of a civil war. As an aside to the discussion of communication between the two states, Father Hardin speaks on communication, language, and symbols within the black community.
