Dr. Austin Allen, Associate Professor History, presented his new research on Quaker anti-slavery petitions and Congressional debates during the 1790s. Audience members included 50 history students and about a dozen CHSS faculty members. Dr. Allen’s work challenges the conventional wisdom regarding slavery and the Constitution, while putting forth a new perspective of an important, but comparatively little studied, period in the history of U.S. slavery.
