Welcome back to Mailbag, a series about the sometimes weird, sometimes fun stuff we get in the mail. Today, Assistant Editor Danette Chavez received a lamp with an engraved quote from the team behind WGN’s Underground. The quote is from abolitionist Sojourner Truth and reads, “I will not allow my life’s light to be determined by the darkness around me.” Underground, of course, tells the story of a group of slaves dubbed the “Macon 7” and their fight for freedom.
