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.
In Episode 2 of the Price of Silence, we look at the Lost Souls Project, which is working to remember and identify African Americans who were forcibly removed from New Jersey and taken to Louisiana and explore the lasting impact of slavery in the state. We also interview singer Danielle Cotton, who discusses her journey as an African American entertainer.
