How Did the Simple Act of Spending a Night In a Slave Cabin Become a Book

Presented by

Join author and journalist Herb Frazier for a conversation with historic preservationist Joseph McGill Jr., founder of the Slave Dwelling Project. Since May 2010, McGill has traveled to twenty-five states to sleep in more than 200 former slave dwellings to bring attention to a need to preserve these structures as important historic evidence of African American contributions to America. McGill and Frazier are co-authors of “Sleeping with the Ancestors: How I Followed the Footprints of Slavery.” The book is now available through pre-order from Hachette Book Group.
