The Life of a Fugitive: Freedom, Tragedy and Conscience

Guest: Emily L. Quint Freeman, author of Failure to Appear: Resistance, Identity and Loss.  In 1969 in Chicago Emily L Quint Freemen broke into a military draft board office and destroyed 40 thousand draft records–potentially saving the lives of many men who would may have otherwise been drafted to serve in Vietnam. The act forced her an underground life as a fugitive for two decades. It’s a remarkable story full of danger, love, freedom and loss.
