Fall 2021 Schedule / History / SLAVERY’S ROLE IN CAPITALIST DEVELOPMENT
Coordinators: Richard Byrd, Diane Crothers, June Zaccone
It is impossible to understand our country without incorporating the role of slavery in its history. Slavery helped shape its institutions, legal and voting systems, labor and foreign relations, social welfare, and much else. This course will first look at that history, assess Black strategy and response, and examine the extent of the remaining injustice to the descendants of those enslaved.
