This week, we celebrate George Washington's birthday, Black History Month, and the opening of the film "Black Panther." It seemed like the perfect time to reprise our episode "Chains" about the role African-Americans played in the Revolutionary War.  A trio of readers from Maryland discuss the book. Actress S.W. James is celebrity reader. This reprise episode features a new interview with writer Laurie Halse Anderson. She talks about why she's written so many books set at the time of the American Revolution. Kitty Felde is host.
