This day in history marks the life of Rev. David Smith. This early AME pastor was born enslaved in the vicinity of Baltimore County in the late 18th century and later became a minister in the AME Church. The biography published about his life in 1881 offers great insight into the early 19th century free black community of Baltimore.

Lisa Crawley, Resource Center Manager at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, joins us for this segment.
