Knowledge is Power: Patriots, Slavery and Freedom in the American North

What does your freedom mean to you?

Students will compare and contrast the role of freedom and education among three black men in Early American Long Island:  A black loyalist spy named Benjamin Whitecuff; a young slave named Simon Thompson, and James McCune Smith, the first African-American physician to hold a medical degree in the United States.
