The Messrs. Craft

One of the most moving stories of love and bravery and cleverness I have ever heard:

The Messrs. Craft, a "love story of two slaves, Ellen and William Craft, and their unusual journey to freedom in 19th century America." There's drama, cross-dressing, heroics... and more. Just wow. From NPR's Here and Now show. Listen by clicking this image of the Crafts:

They are my heroes.
