Reflection on Keynote Presentations
Please write a 1-2 paragraph response to the presentations you just watched on Colonel Lloyd and Mr. Gore.
Consider the following questions when writing your paragraphs:
- What do each of these white men teach us about the role of white men in slavery?
- Is one man better than the other? Is Colonel Lloyd better because he did not whip slaves himself and instead hired men to do that for him? Explain.
- Why does Frederick spend an entire chapter on each of these men? What is their importance in Frederick's story about his life?
