Host Harini Bhat tells the story of Rebecca Cox Jackson and Rebecca Perot, two free Black women in the 19th century who were partners in life and upended the religious establishment to create their own spiritual Shaker community.

While discussing their relationship, we'll ask more than simply, "Were the Two Rebeccas Queer?" and instead broaden the question to how we analyze and speak about the relationships between individuals who existed in a different time, with different societal standards, when people did not have the freedom and safety to live as openly LGBTQ.

What's your reaction?
