Stolen: Five Free Boys Kidnapped into Slavery and their Astonishing Odyssey Home

Stolen is the true story of five boys who were kidnapped in the North and smuggled into slavery in the Deep South—and of their daring attempt to escape and bring their captors to justice.  Join us for a talk on this award winning book by author Richard Bell, Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland.
