Slavery and the Making of America: Seeds of Destruction

July 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History

As part of the American Library Association’s (ALA), Revisiting the Founding Era project, the Auburn Avenue Research Library will host a screening of Seeds of Destruction: Episode 3 of Slavery and the Making of America. As the North adopted laws to abolish slavery, the South saw its greatest expansion of slavery. The abolitionist movement began to gather strength, contributing to the widening fissure and imminent break-up of the nation. Revisiting the Founding Era is designed to provide librarians and local leaders with the resources and support they need to create engaging community conversations around the Founding Era ideas and themes that influence our lives today.
