According to local legend, innkeeper Luke Jaco turned to God and began aiding runaway slaves after Dr. Charter saved him from death. The two men were linked in life. They are linked together still by similar secrets and dirty deeds.  Listen in now as the sisters burst through history and legend to honor the female voices of the abused, the demeaned, the nameless.

50: Murder at the Polls in Hazlehurst, MS

On this episode of Common Mystics a champion for equality is shot dead at the ballot box in 1883 Mississippi.  John Prentiss "Print" Matthews seemed an unlikely hero for civil rights. Born to a wealthy slave holding family, he would go on to represent the political interests of both white and African American farmers in Copiah County during a divisive time. Reconstruction (1865-1877) had failed to secure equal rights for freedmen. By the 1880's, white supremacists had seized power and wielded it to intimidate those who would vote against their interests. But Print Matthews would not be intimidated. Listen in as Jennifer and Jill give voice to one man who stood up for equality in the face of terror.     Support us on Patreon and get exclusive bonus content and monthly video calls with Jen & Jill!!! https://www.patreon.com/commonmystics ...

Neither had we. But the events are truly unfathomable. Led by slave driver Charles Deslondes, enslaved sugar plantation workers nearly overthrew the French plantation owners. The insurgents planned to follow the example of the Haitians and create their own free state. It was not to be. Instead, local militias and US forces crushed the rebellion with outrageous brutality. And yet, the ghostly voices of the rebels still speak out from the bayous. Listen in now as the sisters share their story on this episode of Common Mystics.
