A UB workshop this fall brought together descendants of Dred Scott, Solomon Northup and other former slaves who authored narratives about their enslavement. The gathering, planned by transnational studies professor Kari Winter, may have been the first of its kind.
UB alum Terry Gross EDM '75, BA '72, interviewed Regina Mason whose great-great-great grandfather had been William Grimes, a runaway slave who had authored what is now considered to be the first fugitive slave narrative. Mason was a participant in the Voices of Slavery workshop this past fall. Listen to the interview below.
