Historical interpreters from “I Ain't No Three Fifths of a Person” serve on a panel and discuss a variety of topics including the nature of relationships between certain slaves and their masters; the hierarchy within the enslaved community; how the enslaved received and passed on information; the realities of running away; abolition; manumission; and freedom.
