The Debate on Slavery

Young scholars research the debate over slavery while some students take the pro-slavery side and others the anti-slavery side. They take the role of a character such as a plantation owner, a legislator, a free Black, a slave, or a northern abolitionist to research and portray. Young scholars also debate on the issue of slavery, presenting their positions from the point of view of their character.
