Corpus Fellow interviewed for BBC Culture Show

To coincide with the release of 12 Years a Slave, a BBC Culture Show special looked at the history and culture of slavery. Dr Jay Sexton, Corpus Fellow and Tutor in American History, and Deputy Director of the Rothermere American Institute (RAI), was one of the experts interviewed for the programme. He said: 'To be a free black in the northern states would be much better than being a slave in the south, but there would be all sorts of limitations - both legal and political.'
