Join author, lecturer, television and radio host Antoinette Harrell for a discussion of her new book The Department of Justice -Slavery, Involuntary Servitude and Peonage.
The 13th Amendment to the Constitution outlaws slavery and certain forms of involuntary servitude. The Department of Justice files contain complaints made by persons (victims) who were being held against their will or forced to work off debts through threats and intimidation by employers or others. Most of the victims were negroes who were beaten to return to former employers to work off their debts. These files contain correspondences, memorandums, telegrams, newspapers clippings, transcripts or testimonies, FBI reports of investigation and indictments.

Genealogists tend to think of slavery as a southern issue only. Not so: slavery existed for decades in northern states as well. And freedom didn't come easy -- the law often provided for only for gradual manumission, and freedmen themselves were often unwelcome in the north.

Tonight host Jane Wilcox welcomes Genie Milgrom, the author of My 15 Grandmothers. Genie made headlines in January when her story of tracing her lineage to Crypto Jews became known. We will talk about Genie's journey of discovery, the ancestors she learned about on the way, and her book.
Genie Milgrom crossed the planet in search of her Crypto Jewish or Marrano ancestors. She was able to find 15 grandmothers in an unbroken maternal lineage going back to the early 1500's. It was also possible to successfully prove that her family had been Converso Jews from before the Spanish Inquisition. This Jewish lineage was traced back to a small village called Fermoselle in the province of Zamora, Spain right on The Duero River, across from Mogadouro, Portugal.
As Carl Sagan said, "You have to know the past to understand the present." History has shaped our nation's character, and our collective strength is measured in how we came together during our most challenging moments: the Civil War, World War I, Prohibition, World War II, the Dust Bowl, McCarthyism, the Cold War, the Challenger disaster, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11 and countless struggles before and since. But history also contains triumphs, from ending slavery to the moon landing to the fall of the Berlin Wall to Mars rover Curiosity. Join in discussion on these and more with historians, collectors, authors, professors and conspiracy theorists alike. Our hosts also show much support for our troops and military families. In fact, technology has played a big part in bringing soldiers closer to home, as they text, email and Skype from the front, and our â€œtalk to the troopsâ€ episodes are always inspiring.
