Slavery In Philadelphia: A History Of Resistance, Denial And Wealth

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Join author Phillip Seitz for this urgent exploration of the full story of slavery in Philadelphia, expanding the definition of slavery from the direct ownership of slaves to include slave-based industry, such as Philadelphia's enormous textile manufacturing business (one firm alone used 1.5 million pounds of slave-grown cotton in a single year), and beyond that to the continuing benefit from slavery-generated financial gains.
