THE LIFE OF A SLAVE IN EARLY AMERICA
Two authors join us to talk about the lives of slaves. Freedom Over Me, by Ashley Bryan, brings to life eleven slaves Bryan first encountered in an 1828 slave document he bought at a local Maine auction over a decade ago. In the Shadow of Liberty, by Kenneth C. Davis, is the story of five enslaved people who were “owned” by four of our greatest presidents.
Guests: Ashley Bryan is an award-winning Maine author and illustrator of more than 50 books.
