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:

  1. What do each of these white men teach us about the role of white men in slavery?
  2. 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.
  3. Why does Frederick spend an entire chapter on each of these men? What is their importance in Frederick's story about his life?
