Wow..history captured.. I lived in Annapolis MD for 2½ years. It was long ago, 2 yrs before Roots happened and when I saw it on tv, they showed Kunta Kinta & other slaves being sold on a raised platform in the Annapolis town square, next to the Bay…when I lived there I didn’t know its history, it’s still there now.. It was pretty heavy to learn the shit that happened there 200+ yrs earlier.
Speaking of history, the gang that was writing the constitution sometimes gathered in the Maryland Tavern, still in business when I was there. It’s on a brick street not far from the slave auction site..
.It’s said that Ben Franklin was hanging out with those guys, he’s my favorite historical guy .. The thought that I was walking on the same bricks as old Ben blew my mind..I’d come from out west where we didn’t have the old history like in the east.
It’s wonderful when you can hear and see history.
