This episode of Nurturing Our Roots is a mandatory course requirement for, African-Americans and 20th-Century Slavery, being taught by Professor Clare Washington of Portland State University.  Please join Professor Washington and Host, Genealogist, and Peonage researcher Antoinette Harrell and also Peonage blogger, researcher, and Co-Host Robin Foster as we teach about the concepts of peonage and the impact it had on African-Americans.

Mary Church Terrell (1863-1954) a descendant of former slaves, knew the practice of slavery had not ended in 1863.  Genealogist and Peonage researcher, Antoinette Harrell, discovered documentation in the National Archives which illustrates the frustration which Mary Terrell brought to those in Florida who upheld the institution of peonage. Join us as we discuss how Mary Terrell used her education to bring awareness to the world.

Students are required to call in to share insights while our valued regular guests listen and post questions and comments in the Nurturing Our Roots Chat Room.
