Bill Buell’s Electric City Archives: Chester Arthur Zoom session set

In 2015, What History Forgot program host Joe Moniaci interviewed me for a segment about early civil rights advocate Elizabeth Jennings, who desegregated Manhattan’s transit system in 1854. Atlas Media, producers the series for AHC, read my Gotham Blog piece on Jennings as well as my biography about her. Below is a clip from the full segment. It first appeared on July 7, 2015 (Season 1, Episode 6) and still broadcasts on the network.
