All hear this

David M. Blight
Terry Gross interviewed David M. Blight on Fresh Air yesterday. The subject is slavery in America. Inspired by the movie 12 Years a Slave, the interview is brief but enlightening. Please listen here.

Blight is director of the Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance and Abolition at Yale University, I highly recommend his books on slavery and the way the Civil War and its causes are remembered. These include Race and Reunion, A Slave No More and American Oracle.
