This course will examine slavery in the Americas from the 1500's to the end of the 1800's, to address some questions that people often ask about the institution. Why did slavery exist across time and space? Why is it important to study slavery, if the institution was abolished in the Americas by the late 1800s? How did enslaved people build new lives and cultures in the Americas? How did they resist enslavement and seek freedom? What are the legacies of slavery in the Americas today?

Evelyn Jennings is a Professor of History & Caribbean, Latin American and Latino Studies at Saint Lawrence University.
