Young People's Specials: The Sellin' of Jamie Thomas

Anthony Davis

Given the date it was produced and the subject matter, these videos give a very humanizing view of the slave trade and the underground railroad. To be human is to encounter and adjust to all the good, bad, and ugly of life. The family depicted in the Sellin' of Jamie Thomas is just a representation of the thousands who fled slavery in America.
