Dred and Harriet Scott Multimedia Curriculum Kit

Enrich the study of African American history, slavery, and pre-Civil War America through multimedia storytelling.

In 1846, enslaved African Americans Dred and Harriet Scott filed suit in a Missouri court to win their freedom. After eleven long years, the United States Supreme Court ruled against the Scotts, denying them their freedom and rejecting the ability of Congress to forbid slavery in the territories. It remains one of the most controversial decisions in United States history.
