Did Nat Turner 'confess'
with Patrick Rael

This program will explore the slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in August 1831. Patrick Rael will offer a new interpretation of Turner’s purpose and assess the significance of the rebellion for the national argument over slavery then underway. Ultimately, he argues, one of the least overtly “political” of all slave rebellions had political consequences that led to the breakdown of the union and the civil war that set African Americans free. This public program will also showcase an AAS-sponsored online exhibition that explores various imprints associated with Nat Turner and his rebellion.
