Join us for a CSSJ evening talk with historian Wendy Warren, entitled, “New England Bound: Slavery and Colonization in Early America."
Wendy Warren reconfigures colonial history by sharing how New England’s economy derived its vitality from the profusion of slave-trading ships coursing through its ports. The growth of the northern colonies was dependent on the Atlantic slave trade. She reveals how indigenous people were systematically sold into slavery in the West Indies and how prominent colonial families were motivated by their slave-trading investments.
