History Documentary: In Penn's Shadow (1680-1720) - Philadelphia: The Great Experiment. Pennsylvenia: History of Philadelphia. History Documentary, William Penn
Philadelphia celebrates its founder more than any other American city,
but who exactly is William Penn? For many, he is a statue atop City
Hall, but Penn's busy life reflected an era of chaotic upheaval and
conflict. He is at once a radical Quaker, political prisoner, visionary
city planner, absent landlord, and a slaveholder. His ideals,
contradictions, and ambitions cast a long shadow across American
history. This installment of Philadelphia: The Great Experiment explores
what it means to live In Penn's Shadow.
