Storytellers read both historic and contemporary pieces about slavery in America—the laws, its definition, the human condition as it existed under that institution, and the legacy it left behind.
A downtown Phoenix literary tradition, the Emancipation Marathon commemorates the victims of that "peculiar institution," American Chattel Slavery, with dignity and gravity. The literary selections which comprise The Emancipation Marathon are made within the contexts of the following, but are not necessarily contiguous:
FREE PARKING / LIGHT RAIL
- Slavery - The Law
- Slavery - The Definition
- Slavery - The Human Condition
- Slavery - The Legacy
- Don't want to drive? Take the Light Rail! It lets off at the Central Avenue/Camelback Park-and-Ride, which has hundreds of free parking spaces across the street from Changing Hands.
