  • History of American Slavery | E:9 | After Emancipation
    In Episode 9, the finale episode of our inaugural, members-only Slate Academy, the History of American Slavery, hosts Rebecca Onion and Jamelle Bouie discuss emancipation. They examine how emancipation was more a process than an overnight change, and they compare the different ways it was enacted in the South and throughout the United States. They also discuss how people sought to rebuild their lives and reunite their families once they had achieved freedom from slavery. They begin the episode by remembering the life of Rose Herera (1835–unknown). Our guests in Episode 9: Adam Rothman is associate professor of history at Georgetown University. Read an excerpt from Rothman’s book, Beyond Freedom’s Reach: A Kidnapping in the Twilight of Slavery. Heather Andrea Williams is the presidential professor and professor of Africana studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Read an excerpt from Williams’ book, Help Me to Find My People: The African American Search for Family Lost in Slavery.

  • History of American Slavery | E:8 | Runaway Railroad

They examine our evolving and sometimes selective historical memory of the Underground Railroad. They also explore the legal environment that confronted fugitives and their helpers and how it changed after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

Follow-Up on Episode 7: In Episode 7, Rebecca implied that Samuel Cartwright didn’t support the theory of polygenesis. In fact, Cartwright did eventually espouse the theory in the later years of his career. We also wanted to link to a scholarship fund that we discovered after production of the podcast: the Anarcha, Betsy, and Lucy Memorial Scholarship Award is administered by National Medical Fellowships and awarded to female medical students who are descendants of American slaves.

    In Episode 7 of the History of American Slavery, a Slate Academy, hosts Rebecca Onion and Jamelle Bouie explore what modern medicine gained from slavery, and how slaveholders sought to legitimize their their ideology through science.
