Slavery--Law
Manumission

Description

In this podcast, Georgetown University American Studies students Megan Howell (GU '18) and Catherine Kelly (GU '18) explore Georgetown's history with the institution of slavery. To humanize this narrative, they have chosen to focus on this history through the lens of the Queen Family--specifically Edward and Priscilla Queen, two of many Queen family members who sued for their freedom at the turn of the 19th century. Megan and Catherine contextualize this story with interview material from Professor Adam Rothman of Georgetown University and Professor William G. Thomas III of the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. They also had the privilege of interviewing a Queen family descendant, Dr. Letitia Clark, a radiologist at Georgetown Medstar and a professor at Georgetown Medical School.
