Iowa Filmmakers Explore 19th Century Abolition Movement

Mar 12, 2019


The new film, “Sons and Daughters of Thunder” tells the story of the anti-slavery debates that took place at the Ohio Lane theological Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1834. These controversial meetings, lead by abolitionists, were the first to publically discuss the end of slavery in the U.S. and served as a catalyst for major social activism and change at the seminary and throughout the wider Cincinnati community. 

On this episode of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe is joined by filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle and historian and former president of the Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Cincinnati, Chris DeSimio.
