Little Known History of Slavery in California

I was honored recently to be able to participate in the TedX Eureka  event where I presented on the History of Slavery (indenture) in California. That video is now posted on youtube:

If you would like me to give a presentation similar to that in the video to your civic group or classroom, please email me at lynette.mullen@gmail.com.  

It is not pleasant history, but it is important and has been lost and forgotten too many times.

    Excellent, Lynette. I heard you mention “Molly”–I wonder if that was Jacob’s tragic Molly (also known as Mary). And I heard you mention a well known “pioneer” name. I wonder how many “Humboldt County Pioneers” have the distinction of being slave holders. For shame!
