The Patriot Plan: Growth of Human Rights in Colonial America

The Patriot Plan: Growth of Human Rights in Colonial America

This recording “re-creates the dynamic growth of civil and human rights in Colonial America and seeks to bring into perspective the far-reaching changes in democratic concepts that occurred during that period.” Conceived jointly by Moses Asch and Charles Edward Smith, the album presents texts read by English-born actor, singer, and theatre professor Wallace House. House begins with the Mayflower Compact that established the colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620; includes excerpts on slavery and witchcraft; and extends to writings of key American revolutionaries Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin, and Samuel Adams. Liner notes include detailed historical background information and a full transcription of each text.
