We had the honor of talking to Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers, historian and author of They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South. Listeners of the podcast already know how much we revere her work and have learned from reading her research. It is even more enlightening to talk with Stephanie and learn about her background and approach to this topic and get her thoughts and advice for what it means for white women today. Petty detectives unite!
Below is the example of the nonsense history in textbooks we mention in this episode ... the Upside Down white-supremacy-apologist version of Stephanie Jones-Rogers' brilliant analysis of white slave-owning women. Read it for your daily dose of rage.
