Course Description

In the first course of this series we look at the growth of slavery beginning in the 17th century, the three major slave rebellions, and our early presidents and their relationships with the enslaved. Included are brief biographies of some of our presidents' favorite slaves. We will also jump ahead to the 1950s and 1960s, comparing the change, or lack of change, in society and the White House.
