In West Virginia, Professor Gates finds a court transcript and discovers the legal struggle of his ancestor Isaac Clifford, a free man who was kidnapped and accused of being a runaway slave
African-American lives the promise of freedom ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program looks at how African-Americans defined their freedom after slavery. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. reviews courthouse records of land acquisitions, documents from the Freedmen's Bureau and the 1870 census--the first in which African-Americans were counted as citizens, not property--to trace his subjects' lineages through Reconstruction. A vein that continues throughout the series is Gates' personal story, and in this episode he seeks to confirm a family legend--that a white slaveholder is one of his 19th-century ancestors.
