Huge Dr. Fears fan!

I first came across Dr. Fears through the Great Course Series of ancient Greece and Rome. I've since purchased almost all his available work. Thrilled to be treated to some free material from this entertaining and engaging historian.

Nobody tells a story like Rufus! He has an addicting oratorial style so be prepared to crave more...

The Enslaved African

Any discussion on freedom in America is horrendously remiss if the African American experience is omitted; especially so in a so-called post-racial America with an African American serving as president.

No mention of John Brown or Booker T. Washigton or W.E.B. Dubois or Frederick Douglass or Harriet Tubman or Marcus Garvey or Stokely Carmichael and the list goes on. These people affected and shaped American history as we know it in addition to paving Obama's way to the White House. Read up!

I didn't see it in the lecture titles but I'm hoping there's more than just Dr. King's crusade.
