James H. Johnston from Montgomery History discusses how slavery in the Washington D.C. area evolved differently from other areas, due to the crops being grown, and the diverse nature of Washington.

Slavery in the Washington area was different. It began the same - in the late 1600s - but it soon changed. By the time of the Civil War, Washington D.C. still had slaves, but they lived among a population of free African Americans. Author James H. Johnston will discuss this, and more perspectives on slavery that emerge from his two books, 'The Recollections of Margaret Loughborough,' about a daughter of the Old Dominion of Virginia, and 'From Slave Ship to Harvard,' which follows six generations of an African American family in Maryland.
