Debra Newman Ham, Ph.D. will lead a paired book discussion focusing on Jessica Mccann's historical novel about the heart-breaking story of Margaret Morgan, kidnapped from her home in Pennsylvania in 1837 and sold into slavery.
Also, learn about the constitutional issues involved in the Supreme Court case that determined her fate and sowed the seeds of the states' rights battle that eventually led to the Civil War, as analyzed by Robert H. Baker.
