[ARCHIVED] Heritage Book Club

A Traffic in Souls: Book Club Examines Slave Trade

On January 27, 2017, the Heritage Book Club will begin discussing two books about the slave trade in the US. We’ll focus on how economic self-interest and the profit motive overrode basic human dignity and undermined the democratic ideals of early America, with an in-depth look at Thomas Jefferson’s management of enslaved people and a more general book about the slave trade. Contact Larry before the end of December so that he can order books for you – (336) 883-3637 or larry.cates@highpointnc.gov
