In the premier episode of “Off the Record,” Silas is joined by Hilary Green, an associate professor of history and the conductor of the University’s Hallowed Grounds campus tour, and together they discuss the history and impact of slavery at The University of Alabama. 

They analyze the University’s limited records of slavery, discuss how slavery began on campus, and discover the stories of those enslaved through UA President Basil Manly’s journals and the stories of their lives after Emancipation.
