HIST 265 - Slavery and Freedom in the U.S.

1 unit(s)
(Same as AFRS 265 ) This course explores the history of American slavery and freedom from the Atlantic slave trade through Reconstruction.  We examine the history of African-descended people to understand key developments and regional differences in the making of race and slavery as a commodity form and foundation of an emerging nation-state in North America, resistance movements among enslaved and free Blacks (such as rebellions and the abolitionist movement), black institutional and economic development, and the multiple ways gender, race, and slavery informed the meanings of freedom. In addition to reading secondary sources, we analyze such primary sources as slave voyage records, legal records, slave narratives, and speeches and essays from free Blacks. Quincy Mills.

Two 75-minute periods.

Not offered in 2019/20.
