Abstract

Lehman is a professor of ethnic studies at St. Cloud State University, a former summer visiting fellow at Harvard University, and the author of award-winning Slavery's Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State.

Through careful research in obscure records, censuses, newspapers, and archival collections, Lehman has brought to light the hidden history of northern complicity in building slaveholder wealth.
