Using the John Marshall House–the 1790 home of our 4th Supreme Court Chief Justice–as a lens, this program will use visual aids, primary sources, historic objects, and Q&A to explore and examine the history of three primary Black rebellions in the Early Republic United States.
Students will consider three primary Black rebellions that took place in the Early Republic United States and how these events impacted the future of slavery and law in America. Students will exercise skills in primary source analysis, historical inquiry, critical thinking, connecting past to present, and evaluating change over time.
