This may not sound like a Stacy Horn book, but I’ve wanted to write a book about slavery for a long time. Whether or not that will ever happen remains to be seen (although if I get to write the book I’m thinking about and plan to propose slavery will be in it).
In the meantime, I found this incredible website which lists which U.S. presidents owned slaves. Bottom line, “twelve of our presidents owned slaves and eight of them owned slaves while serving as president.” The site lists who they were, how many slaved they owned, the circumstances, quotes of theirs about slavery and any action they took regarding slavery. VERY eye-opening. It was put together by Western Washington University librarian Robert Lopresti.
Somewhere in Brooklyn, I know not where because I forgot to ask where I was.
