Esi Edugyan: Freedom Before and After

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Stories of slavery in fiction usually end with freedom as a goal. In Esi Edugyan's latest book, the Giller Prize-winning novel "Washington Black," freedom is just the beginning. It's a breathtaking book that captures the sweep of history. She speaks to Nam Kiwanuka about the complexity of the seemingly simple question of what it means to be free.
