Complicity: How the North benefit from slavery an interview by Mitch E. Perry

09/15/06

Slavery in the South has been documented in volumes ranging from exhaustive histories to bestselling novels. But the North’s profit from–indeed, dependence on–slavery has mostly been a shameful and well-kept secret . . . until now. In this startling and superbly researched new book, three veteran New England journalists demythologize the region of America known for tolerance and liberation, revealing a place where thousands of people were held in bondage and slavery was both an economic dynamo and a necessary way of life.

A book written by 3 staff members from the Hartford Courant, called “Complicity: How The North Promoted, prolonged, and profited from slavery complicity�.

Anne Farrow was one of those writers….She’s in Tampa and will sign copies of “Complicity “ tomorrow night at the Clairion Hotel on Fowler avenue at 6pm. WMNF spoke with her today and asked how this project evolved (roll tape#1 o.q.�defining piece of legislation�)

That’s Anne Farrow…She’s the co-author of “Complicitly:How The North promoted, prolonged and profited from slavery�. She’ll be in Tampa, signing copies of the book, tomorrow night in Tampa, at the Clarion Hotel on Fowler Avenue at 6PM
