Experts present papers that discuss the history of the African American slave trade in New England.
New England's pride in its abolitionist heritage has long obscured the presence of slavery in the region for over two hundred years from its first founding to the institution's ultimate demise through schemes of gradual emancipation. Though New England's role in the conduct of the slave trade is perhaps better known, the recent compilation of data related to that trade makes this an auspicious time to examine new research in this area.
This Conference was sponsored by the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, in association with The Museum of Afro-American History; The National Park Service; The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture; Suffolk University; and The W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for Afro-American Research.a
