Overview:

In this video from PBSLearningMedia, John Green teaches students about America's "peculiar institution," slavery. John will talk about what life was like for a slave in the 19th century the United States, and how slaves resisted oppression, to the degree that was possible. We'll hear about cotton plantations, the violent punishment of slaves, day-to-day slave life, and slave rebellions. Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, and Whipped Peter all make an appearance. Slavery as an institution is arguably the darkest part of America's history, and we're still dealing with its aftermath 150 years after it ended.
