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


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
