NJ PBS Specials | Episode | The Price of Silence: Part One

New Jersey, the Garden State, is known for its produce, but not for the enslaved people who tilled the soil. In this two-part documentary, descendants and historians tell their stories and why it was the last northern state to end the institution of slavery. Part one offers an overview of the state’s history of enslaved people and shared poignant family stories of its earliest freed slaves.
