Amended Podcast Features Martha S. Jones


Back in February, the team from Amended, a new podcast by Humanities New York exploring the history of the women’s suffrage movement, visited Homewood to interview Martha S. Jones, the Society of Black Alumni Presidential Professor of History at the Johns Hopkins University Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. Now you can hear that conversation! Listen here:

In episode 2, “Any Woman,” Dr. Jones guides the listener through Homewood and introduces the story of Charity Castle, and enslaved women who advocated for her bodily autonomy and self-emancipation decades before the Seneca Falls convention would enshrine those ideals in the Declaration of Sentiments.
