Local historian HARDY BROWN II takes six SBVC students on a journey of historical empathy via artifacts from Pre-Civil War slavery. Students handle original shackles and read passages from southern law books and newspapers that treated people like used cars. They engage in a dialogue that compares past and present, and breaks down how human bondage was one of America’s original sins.
