Daisy Turner was born in Grafton in 1883, one of 13 children of Sally
and Alec Turner. Her
stories of her 104 years of living and her family’s lineage in slavery are
preserved by the Vermont Folklife Center.
During the 1700’s Vermont
and the New England region were home to a nearly
"hidden" population of African-American slaves.
In her new book, Mr. and Mrs.
Prince, Dartmouth English Professor and author Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina,
dives into the story of two of those slaves. Also, we talk with forestry consultant Paul Harwood. And we bring you the sounds of the Primitive Biathlon in Jerffersonville.
