Format: Hardcover
This year is the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Jamestown Colony in Virginia. As part of the commemorative events, it has been acknowledged that Jamestown had Negro slaves. A part of the American past that still affects modern American society. But in this book, one contributor reminds us that Jamestown was not really the earliest date of African slavery in North America. That dubious honour could be claimed by Sapelo Sound in Georgia in 1526. More significantly, the book describes how slavery evolved in the various North American colonies. Most had slaves at one time or another. Some, in what would become the Northern states of the US, gradually diminished its occurrence. But others, in the south, went from being slaveowning societies to slave societies. Where the former meant slaves existed, while the latter were societies who economies were based on slavery.

Many other topics are covered by the book. Ranging from women and gender, across the southwest and west, to an analysis of the class structures of different regions. A good read, for someone already knowledgeable about the main themes in American history.
