On January 1, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued an executive order proclaiming the freedom of slaves in the ten states then in rebellion. In the months since, with the war between the states continuing, the country is beginning to assess the meaning of this historic presidential order. Nowhere does this have more of an impact than in Ripley, Ohio. Here in the early spring 1863, two neighbors and colleagues in the anti-slavery movement, one black, one white, sit together and discuss just how far they have come and what the future holds. Join Mr. John Parker, portrayed by Anthony Gibbs of Columbus and the Reverend John Rankin, portrayed by Ronald St Pierre of Westerville, as they reflect on their lives and their work to bring freedom to an oppressed people.
