[ARCHIVED] Heritage Book Club

A Traffic in Souls: Book Club Examines Slave Trade

On January 27, 2017, the Heritage Book Club will begin discussing two books about the slave trade in the U.S. from 10:30 am to 12 pm in the 3rd floor Book Lovers' Room of the High Point Public Library. We’ll focus on how economic self-interest and the profit motive overrode basic human dignity and undermined the democratic ideals of early America, with an in-depth look at Thomas Jefferson’s management of enslaved people and a more general book about the slave trade. Contact Larry before the end of December so that he can order books for you – (336) 883-3637 or larry.cates@highpointnc.gov
