Lisa Tolliver tours the history of small business, slaves and the Underground Railroad on "SCORE Radio" and "The Lisa Tolliver Show" (Feb. 22, 2006)

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - Steal away for an hour to enjoy Part II of my on air African American History Month celebration on New York radio WVOX at AM 1460 and . Today's special broadcast will span the time slots reserved for SCORE: Counselors to America's Small Business (at 1:00-1:30, Eastern Time) and The Lisa Tolliver Show (at 1:30-2:00 pm, Eastern Time). We'll acknowledge the traders, farmers, artisans and other small businesspeople who have historically been the backbone of the American economy, the roles of slaves and free blacks in those arenas, and take a tour on the History Channel's "Underground Railroad DVD". (Click the link to read my February 16 blog article: "Prerequisite stopover during African American History Month: The Underground Railroad. All aboard! "). We'll also launch the Emergency Safety Tips series provided by the Westchester Emergency Volunteer Reserves-Medical Reserve Corps (WEVR-MRC), wish a hearty happy birthday to my Aunt Mary Ware (who at age 105 is the richest source of African American history in my family), and share some oral history about our Cousin Fannie, who was a slave in Virginia.
