The Impact of Slavery and the Myth of the Free North
The slave economy is often associated with images of Southern plantations, but it played a major role in the Northern states and cities nationwide, becoming a fundamental building block of the country. Cornell University professor Edward Baptist and NYU professor Michele Mitchell discuss the history of the institution of slavery, what was different between its incarnations in the North and the South, and what was tragically similar. Moderated by BHS Vice President of Curatorial Affairs & Collections, Julie Golia.
