On the next Fresh Air - we look at the failed promises of Reconstruction after the civil war, when our country first tried to address the question of equality for all Americans including freed slaves. Terry talks with historian Eric Foner author of Forever Free. He writes that the unresolved legacy of Reconstruction remains a part of our lives today. Join us.
