(Video) Elizabeth Dowling Taylor X Jon Stewart X @TheDailyShow X A Slave In the White House (Paul Jennings)

She tells the story of Paul Jennings, who served as one of James Madison's slaves and ultimately purchased his own freedom.


I think folks forgot that some of our PRESIDENTS had slaves.... very interesting.

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL EH? Remember, the CONSTITUTION  was in FULL EFFECT.....

Moment of the Video:

EDT- "You know, when I approach a book like this, my particular objective is to neither to defend or nor to denounce. I just really want to tell Paul Jennings story..."

JS: Yeah...."THAT'S NOT GONNA FLY in this..environment.. Unfortunately, I'm afraid you're gonna have to be a little bit more partisan...."

EDT (Doubles over in laughter)
