DaMaris Hill Bears Witness To 'Bound' Women

"History can be so narrow in the ways that they talk about a person's life."

In A Bound Woman is a Dangerous Thing, University of Kentucky professor Dr. DaMaris Hill struggles alongside her subjects, women of color who've found themselves bound – by the law, the shackles of slavery, the ties of family, and inheritance. Hear the full interview with WUKY's Josh James.

Josh James fell in love with college radio at Western Kentucky University's student station, New Rock 92 (now Revolution 91.7). After working as a DJ and program director, he knew he wanted to come home to Lexington and try his hand in public radio.
