To Possess a Human Soul: Slavery & the American Presidency with Marilyn Carminio

The history of slavery is largely anonymous and the stories of the enslaved are often relegated to a footnote in history. Because of their proximity to American presidents, the histories of those enslaved by these men are well documented although not widely known. Through vivid portraits, you will learn about their daily lives and how they made sense of their existence as human beings. You will meet a Revolutionary War hero; relive dramatic escapes; become acquainted with the first African American celebrity athletes; and attend an important White House dinner.
