Octavius Valentine Catto Was An Orator Who Shared Stages With Frederick Douglass, A Second Baseman On Philadelphia's Best Black Baseball Team, A Teacher At The City's Finest Black School And An Activist Who Fought In The State Capital And On The Streets For Equal Rights. With His Racially-charged Murder, The Nation Lost A Civil Rights Pioneer-one Who Risked His Life A Century Before Selma And Birmingham. In Tasting Freedom Murray Dubin And Pulitzer Prize Winner Dan Biddle Painstakingly Chronicle The Life Of This Charismatic Black Leader-a "free" Black Whose Freedom Was In Name Only. Born In The American South, Where Slavery Permeated Everyday Life, He Moved North Where He Joined The Fight To Be Truly Free-free To Vote, Go To School, Ride On Streetcars, Play Baseball And Even Participate In July 4th Celebrations. Catto Electrified A Biracial Audience In 1864 When He Proclaimed, "there Must Come A Change," Calling On Free Men And Women To Act And Educate The Newly Freed Slaves. With A Group Of Other African Americans Who Called Themselves A "band Of Brothers," They Challenged One Injustice After Another. Tasting Freedom Presents The Little-known Stories Of Catto And The Men And Women Who Struggled To Change America.
