In 2014, Antioch College Professor of History Dr. Kevin McGruder spent a warm summer afternoon talking to Precious Jewel Freeman Graham—treasured member of the community, founder of Antioch’s social work program, advocate for Black students, and Professor Emerita. Jewel retired from the College in 1993 after 30 years of service. She passed away in 2015.
This wide ranging oral history interview, that covers most of Jewel’s life, has been posted by McGruder as guest host on WYSO’s new series, “Loud As The Rolling Sea.”
