Historical interpreters from I Ain't No Three Fifths of a Person -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVchKPo-uxs -- take us back to 1792 and discuss what the new constitution will mean to them. Billy Lee, who served as General Washington’s manservant throughout the Revolutionary War; Caroline Branham and Oney Judd, who worked under Mrs. Washington’s supervision in the mansion; Christopher Sheels, the General’s manservant in Washington’s later years; and Bob Hemings, manservant to Thomas Jefferson, join host Kate Sullivan for a discussion on our Nation’s founding period from the point of view of the enslaved community.
This program was recorded before an audience of teachers and students at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, Museum & Gardens. The panel discussion and audience questions explore a variety of topics including the nature of relationships between certain slaves and their masters; the hierarchy within the enslaved community; how the enslaved received and passed on information; the realities of running away; abolition; manumission; and freedom.
