From the WGBH Forum Network: "While the holidays evoke the warm scent of gingerbread, the role of molasses in the eighteenth century world economy had a much larger impact than the kitchen. Historian Anthony Sammarco traces molasses from the slave trade to the abolitionist movement to the great molasses flood in Boston's North End."
