Roland: I'd like to appear ruddy today... Makeup Artist: Okay. Why? Roland: To put my subjects at ease. Several weeks ago, the state of Mississippi finally ratified the 13th Amendment banning slavery... One life that's been changed dramatically belongs to Roy Grenier, now believed to be the last slave in America! So, Roy, how is it that you and your family remained in bondage for 148 years after emancipation? Roy: We were never told we were free. Our masters just kept saying that Mississippi never voted to ratify! Roland: Didn't your fellow fieldworkers know? Roy: Beats me-- they only spoke Spanish! So for generations my family has known nothing but the lash! Roland: Fascinating. For another perspective, let's hear from Roy's former owner... Owner: Worst. Slave. Ever.
