How “The Ledger And The Chain” Examines The Domestic Slave Trade
(aired Tues 10/12/21)
“The Ledger and the Chain” tells the forgotten story of how the domestic slave trade shaped the history of this country - including here in the Southeast.
Prof. Joshua D. Rothman is the author of the book, released earlier this year.
He chairs the Department of History at the University of Alabama.
On Thursday (10/14/21) starting at 4 PM, he will appear on our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - in Derthick Hall 201 for a talk and a conversation titled “The Slave Trade and Capitalism.”
I spoke with him - and Dr. Mark Johnson, a lecturer in UTC’s Department of History.
