Joanna Banks discussed slaves and slavery with a group of young students. After the discussion, Banks read a story about the life of African Americans in Washington, D.C. from 1800-1860; specifically, the story about Addy and her life as a house slave. After the story, there was a discussion about freedom and singing of a 'Sweet Honey in the Rock' song about freedom. The program concluded with Banks showing students a few objects and photographs on display in the exhibition 'Southern City, National Ambition: The Growth of Washington, D.C. 1800-1860.'
