0426SC Slavery in the Atlantic World, 1450 to 1870

November 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| $25.00

Slavery is an ancient institution. Beginning ca. 1450, when reasonably reliable voyages to and from sub-Saharan Africa became possible, more than twelve million enslaved Africans were transported to the Americas. We will consider why the Atlantic trade developed and how it operated; the spectrum of slave systems established in the Americas; how slaves endured and resisted bondage; and the rise of anti-slavery movements that challenged the foundations and presumed legitimacy of this ancient institution.
The course meets on November 4 and 11.
