Podcast: The Founding Fathers & The Issue of Slavery

James Kennedy Ministries and also hosts a weekly radio program called “Vocal Point” on GraceNetRadio (www.GraceNetRadio.com), which airs four times each day with new interviews added on Thursdays.
“In this particular segment, the question on the table is actually beyond George Washington himself—to the other founders and the issue of slavery. Many of the founders were adamantly opposed to slavery and worked for its abolition. Obviously, others did not agree.” – From GraceNet Radio
