How the Founding Fathers argued over slavery

Even as the American colonies fought for independence from England, questions were being raised as to the freedom of Black people in the soon-to-be United States. Edward Larson is University Professor of History and Hugh and Hazel Darling Chair in Law at Pepperdine University, and he joins guest host John McCaa to discuss strategies from the American and British sides to emancipate enslaved Black people against the backdrop of the American Revolution. His book is “American Inheritance: Liberty and Slavery in the Birth of a Nation, 1765-1795.”
