Day 9 of GED in 5 months, salt, trade, and transit

So, if salt is so important, how did they get it from one place to another before we had trains?   One of the key details of Phase I of the Four Freedoms movement is public transportation, as important back in time as today, right?

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

Please leave a review, if you can, on the GoodReads page.
