Product Description
People have offered many opinions about Nat Turner over the past 200 years. Was he a man of God or a religious fanatic? A freedom fighter or a terrorist? Intelligent or insane? Judge Nat Turner by his own words, as told to white interviewer Thomas Gray, from his jail cell, before his execution in 1831. Students read modified excerpts from Turner, then explain their opinion on Turner and brainstorm discussion questions for class. I like to push the discussion toward how much we can trust the jail cell interview by a white man, and whether the barbarity of slavery justifies the savage violence Turner calmly describes.
