    Rhiannon Giddens: "At the Purchaser's Option"

    Rhiannon Giddens performs "At the Purchaser's Option," one of nine original songs she wrote or co-wrote on her 2017 album, Freedom Highway. "Last year I came across an advertisement from the 1830s for a young woman," Giddens says of the new song. "Thinking about her, and how she had to maintain her humanity against horrific odds inspired this song named for the end of the ad: 'She has with her a 9-month old baby, who is at the purchaser's option.'"
