Dr Anita Franklin returns to AVP to talk about her new audio drama “I Leave You Love” which chronicles the life of Mary McLeod Bethune, an American celebrated as one of the most powerful advocates for civil rights and suffrage. Mary also opened a school for African American girls in Florida in 1904.
When members of the Ku Klux Klan threatened to burn her school, Bethune held an all-night school-front vigil with a groundskeeper and some of her students.
The second episode is available on Vanitas Arts and features Anita Franklin, Amanda Huxtable and Desiree Reynolds. https://www.vanitasarts.co.uk/httpsww… Anita also discusses the UK’s Nationality and Borders bill which hit headlines because it grants more powers to the UK government to remove British citizenship without notice.
