In 1777, Vermont’s constitution outlawed slavery. But it turns out people continued to be enslaved for a number of years after that.

We’ll talk to UVM History professor Harvey Amani Whitfield about his new book, The Problem of Slavery in Early Vermont, 1777-1810.

Also on the show, we'll hear from a Vermont mother who is testifying in Washington DC this week about her son's experience with a food borne illness.
