In 2017, Rhiannon Giddens  stopped by the World Cafe with her album, Freedom Highway.  On that record, she went straight to the darkest parts of history, speaking for those whose voices have often being silenced – from slaves, to the people of the civil rights movement, to contemporary victims of racism. We revisit that session again, on the next World Cafe.
