Three years later, circa 1851, (still in Boston) Black abolitionists invade a courtroom and rescue a fugitive slave. (give us free)
Spin forward, circa 1961, when U.S. and African nationalists, protesting the slaying of Congo Premiere Patrice Lumumba, disrupt United Nations sessions. (give us free)
