Esclaves vendus pour sauver Georgetown: un aperçu de la vie de la vie de Frank Campbell


J'ai déjà relayé sur mon carnet web l'histoire de ces esclaves vendus en 1838 pour financer l'université (http://toursdelaliberte.blogspot.ca/2016/04/georgetown-university-et-la-traite-des.html). Le new York Times nous offre ce matin un aperçu de la vie de l'un de ces esclaves. Il existe même des images de cet esclave qui connaîtra éventuellement la liberté.

 "Mr. Campbell would survive slavery and the Civil War. He would live to see freedom and the dawning of the 20th century. Like many of his contemporaries from Maryland, he would marry and have children and grandchildren. But in one respect, he was singular: His image has survived, offering us the first look at one of the 272 slaves sold to help keep Georgetown afloat.
