Black History Month Virtual Book Discussion: "Stolen" with Richard Bell
Wednesday, February 9, 2022
Meet author Richard Bell, Professor of History at the University of Maryland, as he discusses his book entitled Stolen. Finalist for both the Harriet Tubman and George Washington prizes, this is the astonishing story of five free boys kidnapped from the North in 1825 and their harrowing journey to the deep South where they are sold into slavery. This true story shines a light on the seldom-told existence of the Reverse Underground Railroad run by human traffickers who stole away thousands of legally free African-Americans.
