Episode 5: A Brick Wall, Whitewashed: The Revolutionary Soldier and “Black Jenny”

Episode 5: A Brick Wall, Whitewashed: The Revolutionary Soldier and “Black Jenny”

Jenny was a young mother of three in 1830 when her enslaver, a Revolutionary War Veteran, decided to set the family free and then willed his property to Jenny and her oldest son, Aaron. This episode will tell her remarkable story after it remained hidden for almost 2 centuries, covered in layer upon layer of whitewashed misinformation. Why so much whitewashing? To hide Jenny and Aaron’s true relationship to the enslaving family. I’ve got some paint thinner, and a chisel - we’re taking down this wall! Note: Last episode of Season 1.
