This course will examine the origins and development of race-based chattel slavery in British North America and the United States, the impact of the institution on Africans and African Americans, the rise of the abolitionist movement, the political consequences of slavery, and its eventual demise in the United States and the western hemisphere.

All major aspects of the institution of slavery will be surveyed, such as the slave trade, the legalization of the institution, and slave adaptation and rebellion.

This course is cross-listed with HIST 2117.
