New England Bound: Slavery and Colonialism in early America

Seventeenth-century New England had plantations -- they were simply off-shore.

Lecture Description

This lecture explains how slavery was crucial to the building of all English colonial societies, even in the far-flung Puritan colonies of New England. By centering the lives of enslaved people who found themselves in the region alongside Pilgrims and Puritans, the lecture broadens our understanding of the lived experience of chattel slavery.
