    Very important information, especially to those of use who think our ancestors were guiltless because they lived in the North. Ari’s explanation of Rhode Island’s involvement in the slave trade confirmed what a cousin’s research into our family revealed to him. It’s sad and disappointing, but it is our history, and we must learn from it.

    Ms. Wilkins did a great job!! I didn’t know there was a difference between the north and the south. I have learned a lot and I can’t wait to share with others.

    Very interesting and enlightening. I had no idea that slavery was as entrenched in the North!
