Attorney Mike Smith is the President of HSLDA, an organization that he helped found in 1983. Established to protect the right of parents to teach their children at home, HSLDA now represents over 80,000 member families. Mike and his wife Elizabeth began homeschooling their children in 1981. He has been defending families for 28 years. Mike has been speaking to homeschool audiences for 23 years. His columns on home education appear regularly in the Washington Times, and he has been a guest on numerous television and radio programs, including Focus on the Family with Jim Dobson and Hannity and Colmes on Fox News.

Although he was delivered from the manacles of slavery by the Emancipation Proclamation, Booker T. Washington knew that freedom was not free. In the Reconstruction-era South, he knew that in order to manage their freedom well and benefit from it fully, former slaves would have to undertake a lot of hard work.   How does his experience compare to ours? One hundred fifty years later, is freedom free? Or does it still come at a cost? How can we manage and protect our freedom? And how does the study of the liberal arts help us do that? Listen as we discuss these questions and more!
