February 11: Partus Sequitur Ventrum: The History of Slavery in America

The practice of slavery in the United States began in 1619, when 20 Africans were sold in Virginia. The economic potential of the New World encouraged the international trade in human beings, and by the 19th Century, the United States was becoming richer than any nation ever seen on Earth, largely based on the wealth generated by slavery and its attendant industries, like textiles, insurance, and commerce. Shedding the country of this practice would require a civil war, although its after-effects continue to plague the nation. Lutris will discuss the early days of slavery in America, how it fostered US wealth and power through the early 1800s, and the crisis that brought on the Civil War in 1861.
