This course will survey the history of slavery and race in the development of the United States, beginning with the era of the Atlantic Slave Trade and ending with movements aimed at combating the legacy of slavery in the present day. The course will pay particular attention to exploring the labor and cultural practices of enslaved people as well as the significance of slavery as an economic and legal institution. In particular, the course will examine debates over slave resistance; the relationship between slavery and ideas of race; the ways that unfreedom persisted after the formal end of slavery; and the strategies used by slaves, freedpeople, and their allies to combat racial inequality in its various forms from slavery to the present day.
