Poet and past prize recipient Jonah-Mixon Webster and Lisa Monroe of the Gilder Lehrman Center discuss the ways in which the history of enslavement in the United States continues to haunt the present.

Lisa Monroe is a researcher, writer, and currently a doctoral student in the History of Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University. She examines the relationship between U. S. public school curricula during the nineteenth century and ideas of citizenship, national identity, and development of the American narrative. Follow her on Twitter @nowrisebooks.
