Show Notes: An Interview With Dr. Kali Nicole Gross

Tracy Wilson

"The Quadroon's Comparison" (attempting to confirm the race of the discovered torso) in the National Police Gazzette, March 1887.

Today's podcast is an interview with Dr. Kali Nicole Gross about her book, "Hannah Mary Tabbs and the Disembodied Torso: A Tale of Race, Sex, and Violence in America." It's the story of a gruesome murder, but it's simultaneously an examination of criminal justice in Philadelphia in 1887 - much of which is relevant to the U.S. justice system today.

Our listener mail is from Gabrielle and follows our recent interview with Dr. Katherine Sharp Landdeck about the Women Airforce Service Pilots.
