Slavery and the Making of America
History85 Comments
Slavery and the Making of America is a four-part series documenting the history of American slavery from its beginnings in the British colonies to its end in the Southern states and the years of post-Civil War Reconstruction.
Drawing on a wealth of recent scholarship, it looks at slavery as an integral part of a developing nation, challenging the long held notion that slavery was exclusively a Southern enterprise.
At the same time, by focusing on the remarkable stories of individual slaves, it offers new perspectives on the slave experience and testifies to the active role that Africans and African Americans took in surviving their bondage and shaping their own lives.
1. The Downward Spiral. Episode one opens in the 1620s with the introduction of 11 men of African descent and mixed ethnicity into slavery in New Amsterdam. Working side by side with white indentured servants, these men labored to lay the foundations of the Dutch colony that would later become New York. There were no laws defining the limitations imposed on slaves at this point in time. Enslaved people, such as Anthony d'Angola, Emmanuel Driggus, and Frances Driggus could bring suits to court, earn wages, and marry.
2. Liberty in the Air. From the 1740s to the 1830s, the institution of slavery continued to support economic development. As the slave population reproduced, American planters became less dependent on the African slave trade. Ensuing generations of slaves developed a unique culture that blended elements of African and American life. Episode two follows the paths of several African Americans, including Thomas Jefferson's slave Jupiter, Colonel Tye, Elizabeth Freeman, David Walker, and Maria Stewart, as they respond to the increasingly restrictive system of slavery.

The advent of the combine harvester made slavery, white and black no longer economically viable, so slaves were 'liberated' as indentured servants of state (via birth certification, the introduction of 'sir' names generally for tax ID purposes). We need to get over that the term 'slavery' does not exclusively apply to 'black'. Slavery is slavery and is not colour predjudiced - never was.

I don't go with the 'racism' memes of the Racists within and behind BBC (British Buggery Corp) as this is a Bankster Zionista Mafioso creation, much like all the ISMS and schisms of that class and tribe.

However, through their imposition of Usury (use you and me) worldwide, enslaving everyone in debt, child trafficking and human trafficking/slavery is endemic. UN 'peacekeeping' forces, together with false front charity and 'aid' cabals have infiltrated all communities spreading terror, fragmentation, disease and death.

Note: 'indentured servants' is a misnomer to give a false impression (for divide and rule purposes) that the term 'slavery' is and was exclusively 'black'. Not in the colonies, it wasn't. It was almost exclusively white until late into the process. Black slaves were purchased from African tribal chiefs or kidnapped (as were whites) by Barbary Pyrates (Muslim Moroccons) and traded with the Arabs via the Merchants (Jews). Blacks were pivotal to the justification of the butchery in the Southern States, on the 'slavery' ticket whlst the Founding Fathers one and all in the North (City of London controlled) were flagrant slave owners. Wilberforce argued for an end to Black Slavery and won it for the landgrab and looting of the South, forcing a confederacy all under CoL control. Whilst he was doing this, whites in Britain and Europe were from very young children, through to pregnant women, slaving up to 18 hours a day under brutual conditions long after 'slavery was abolished'. It never was. The blacks got taxed same as the whites is all that happened there.

O...kay... I really think you need to dig around in your history textbook before making such statements. There is great evidence that the people to discover the Americas were AFRICANS... ever heard of the Olmecs? Without slavery... where would they be now? Oh, I'm sure they'd have made it across sooner or later. They're not inferior when it comes to technology. There is no reason to think that the Africans would still be in Africa without slavery!

The practice of holding people in bondage and coercing them to serve the predators who had weapons and used them on other less well-armed goes well back into the human experience. I encourage anyone interested to go online and type in The History of Slavery or a variation thereof. No one can claim that their ancestors were not at one time or another predator/prey. This is not meant to excuse the actions of those involved in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, but to encourage the readers to investigate for themselves the experience of bondage through the millennia. Don't be too surprised if you discover that the slave and master, in many cases, look like family.

And to all yes, yes but the time is at hand that the very plan that was plan to enslave is at its end. Fear and freedom no longer define who we are, what the condition by which we/our ancestor endured. What was done and continued for generation to generation no longer has its hold over our heads. The plan and purpose for those that were to stay in the "state" of internalized oppression, the institutions that form the good old boys way of thinking is now dead. It can not return because although African Americans have been condition not think on one accord, it was known then to be dangerous. The time is now we made it and the very words of truth by Thomas Jefferson ask they lingered in his mind, vibrated down his arm, therefore his hand confessed the one thing that when our time to unite is, remember (Thomas one of the oracles that formed the "Constitution") said in his letter to his friend, "truly if there is a God, we will pay for what we have done".

No. Not so different. Children born to an indentured slave belonged to the master (was sometimes of the master) even if the woman somehow managed to earn her freedom; she would not leave her children so continued as a slave. Irish women and girls shipped overseas for over 200 years before the African introduction, were bred with the more expensive African male slaves to produce fresh free stock. That's why a law was brought in eventually prohibiting this interbreeding; it interfered with the local trading merchant's profits. Similar lines along which African slave trading was outlawed; The Guv and merchants wanted direct access to each and every slave for taxation and control purposes. Thereby all became 'equal' with 'equal rights' i.e. no rights at all as indentured servants of the state just like their white counterparts had always been.

African slave value: up to 50 shillings sterling
Irish indentured servant: up to 5 shillings

The math should put to rest any further argument regards the African slave trade as being unique or unusual in the course of this continuing trade. In fact, African slaves were highly valued and as such would have been treated more carefully than...

Uh, were you not watching the documentary? First if you were placed in a foreign country where you don't know your whereabouts, the language, the culture, literally in a totally new environment where would you go if you rebel? You'd die/get killed trying to fight constantly which people did. And then slavery PSYCHOLOGICALLY damaging. The slaves were brought up from birth to believe there is not other way and you are to be inferior and to think low about yourself and so on. Unfortunately this damage has been passed on from generation to generation. And groups of people did indeed try to fight back... revert back to the documentary listing people/groups that tried to do just that and failed only to upset the slave owners and receive sever punishment. And these people surely were not trying to be "allowed" to be slaves. The situation was very difficult and the times were extremely bad and the country and it's leaders were against them. Even if you were free you had it bad.

That's so frigging ignorant I don't know where to start!

To start I'll just say ROME. Rome subsisted on slavery for a thousand years...get a grip on reality.

And atrocious? The Colosseum in Rome saw the death of more than a million slaves (gladiators)..for entertainment and every Roman city big or small had its own Arena. The Roman slave owners used to sell old and sick plantation slaves to the Arena to be used as prey (food) for wild beasts...a major form of entertainment.

And as a matter of fact Black Africans were always really good at enslaving other Black Africans---not to be shipped anywhere but for domestic use.
From medieval times to the early 20th century:

•Most West African countries/tribes/kingdoms were about 2/3 free and 1/3 slaves and in most cases the slaves were treated like shit.

•Ethiopia and Eritrea had 20% slave population slavery was abolished there in 1923

•Somalia

......and is there ANY mention of the Irish slave trade? Let's address that while we're at it. What groups were overwhelmingly responsible for the African slave trades, one in particular? Here's a hint. They don't consider themselves "white" since "whites" and blacks are referred to as Goyim. Do a little research into the Talmud. It pays to know who your real nemesis is in both the past and present.

One important difference between slavery and indenture--Slavery was inherited--hence, the term chattel--bartered, bred, owned, and inherited in perpetuity (the child shall follow the condition of the mother) . . . African slaves first traded, and then bred domestically after the trade ended--disconnected from cultural or ethnic backgrounds and denied the rights of national citizenry (de jure) until Civil War, and then for a century afterwards de facto until 1965 - - - the condition and situation of African Slavery in the United States is unique --- a fact that does not in any way diminish other forms of slavery and oppression of non-Africans--or for that matter atrocities suffered throughout the world by many of multiple "races" etc.

It is well documented that the slaves were not allowed to be legally married, they were allowed to Jump The Broom, which was in no way a recognized form of legal marriage in America, thus the prolonged and acceptance of their white slave masters for being able to basically sell so-called husbands and wives, they could do that in a clear Christian conscience because they did not allow slave to be married under the eyes of God or legally. To this day many African Americans incorporate Jumping The Broom into their marriages as a way of paying homage to the time when we ( yes, I am Black) were not allowed to be legally married under the law or under the eyes of God. Anderson was right, Bachmann was wrong but then again she makes a career out of being wrong, nothing new with her at all.

dav: There certainly were instances of slavery all over the world in all periods of history but NEVER has there been such a prolonged, atrocious and cruel period than the slave trade from Africa to America.

The Irish slave trade eventually stopped and there also were many instances of indentured servitude where the people were set free after a number of years while that (almost) never happened to African slaves.

The point that you are missing is that the African American slave trade and slavery eventually stopped but the atrocities kept going on during Reconstruction and beyond.

How many of the former Irish slaves were made share croppers with no rights? How many former Irish slaves had to suffer segregation? How many of the former Irish slaves were denied their right to vote?

And if you want to equivocate, I'll have to ask you this: What are several million people who are in large parts still not free compared to several thousand people who have been free for centuries?

The Slaves That Time Forgot

By John Martin

They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.

Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

We don't really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? After all, we know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade. But, are we talking about African slavery?

King James II and Charles I led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain's famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one's next door neighbor.

The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold...

Oh Yes? what about IRISH slaves? the first official auction of 30,000 irish "political prisoners" by the english government took place in Virginia in 1623. Mostly died within a year. Torture, abuse, worked to death. cheap.

The Irish were literate, well dressed, had the first literature after Rome and Greece. Then the english slavers ran them down on horseback, men and women and children (SEX SLAVES) for illiterate Virginian owners.. Bred with irish girls, then bred them with blacks. These were slaves for LIFE if they lived as were their children.

The population of Ireland was 1.5 million at the beginning of slavery, 0.6 million at the end of slavery.

WHY DOES AMERICA NOT INCLUDE THIS INFORMATION?
Sure later there were indentured "irish" who were english/scottish poor tenant farmers of irish land given to english who financed the english invading army. The irish owners were hung, banished to Clare and Galway, forbidden to own land to starve or sold as slaves for life.

THis is disgusting to see a Top Documentary Film STILL LYING.

@Smart Alek & Stoneman...Firstly, ALL history is relevant. It will never not be relevant. We study the Jewish holocaust thoroughly and yet we merely GRAZE over the crime that was the African Slave Trade. You cannot know where you're going until you know where you've been. Yes, that old cliché still remains.

Secondly, the fact that other atrocities have happened in human history and ARE HAPPENING at this very moment cannot be disputed. Comparing one diabolical human event to another is completely illogical though. What is the point of saying 'Palestinians endured worse slavery'? All of these events are tied to one another and all of them matter. We should learn about all of them, study them relentlessly.

3) Thirdly, I don't understand the notion that Black Americans are angry at white folks for what their ancestors did 100 years ago. If anything, black people are "angry" at the existence and institution and cruelty of the African Slave Trade, not the slaveholders' descendents. I would say, though, that many people today are totally frustrated and angry at the fact that slavery in America is given a passing mention in History Class. Slavery has...

@stoneman i understand what u r trying 2 say about how people should move on from the past and descendents of slaveowners should't be held responsible 4 the actions of their ancestors... the problem lies in the arrogance and racist values that r instilled in the descendents and future generations of those ancestors u say we should 4get. no matter what colour we r we all seem 2 harbour some level of racism towards each other that we r not born with. until we all become accountable for our actions as human beings both in the past and present we will keep repeating history in the future . let's not 4get the past because our (hi)stories are what make us who we r2day. instead let's learn from our mistakes and reassess our positions in this world as human beings. peace & love

Stoneman and realities point is that the descendants of slaves were and still aee being punished. because of the life they were forced into and the inequalities they still face are very real and a direct result of the actions/inactions of the past.

once again. you are embarrassing me as a white person and i hope you just stop soon. take some time to look outside of your bubble and examine the way the world is working and look to history to understand why.

My point is, no one today had anything to do with those past decisions. You can't punish the ones that did it because they died long ago. Trying to punish their decendants generations later wont work because many of them also have part Native American and African American blood also. All we can do is be logical and learn from the past and ensure a better future. We can actully change that.

@ Stoneman

"When does it end?" How many years did slavery exist in America? How many years were there laws on the books that prohibited Afrikan-Americans from enjoying the benefits of full citizenship? Let's just address the years between 1875 (Jim Crow) and 1965 (Civil Rights Bill). That's about 90 years, right? So if I were to expect equalization of entitlements in this legalized scenario, it would end in 2055. We had about 10 years, from 1865 to 1875 where the government made some attempts to provide assistance to a "freed people". However, the promise of '40 acres and a mule' wasn't sustained. Perhaps if that had been done, and property ownership; a basis for the building of wealth had been extended to the descendants of enslaved Afrikans, the opportunity to sustain our existence would have amounted to economic achievements that rivaled the success of Black businesses and professionals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. However, I fear that the envy and jealousy of right winged extremist would have probably evoked similar attacks chronicled in the history of Tulsa.

You never got a penny from the slave trade?
What do you think created the wealth and power that britain and america have today. It was things like slavery.
And strangely enough, things which we, mere mortals aren't allowed to do today, like dealing in opiates and hemp.
The (white) western world owes an unending debt to the black people of the world... in my opinion.

Just for the record, I am a white, english born, 45 year old man.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Rome and most other empires use blacks as slaves very sucessfully long before America was discoved? I wondered why they would sail all the way to Africa to get slaves when they had native Americans here everywhere. A little research said that they did actually try this- but the indians would fight back too hard, cutting and stabbing the master till the idea was abandonded and the native Americans released for the mentally inferior Africans- Not my words, just history!

you only have to look across the irish sea for a fine example of british slavery.

and ireland still suffers from the hangover of british colonisation in the form of the troubles in the occupied six counties.
it seems to be written out of history that the irish population was enslaved and forced from their lands, culminating in a famine which was more a case of british genocide as all food produced in ireland during the famine in the 1800s was sent to britain. killing over 1.5million irish people.

Actual Mike Russia is the largest multi-ethic nation in the world has more 300 native languages and skin color varies.

Thought infant they them selfs were victims of being enslaved by the Golden horde, Muslim warlords invaded Russia for slaves, till Russian empire conquered them.

As for Chief," In Christianity (and you probably know this) the Papacy held that Africans had no souls and were thus useful as beasts of burden. In the Americas, church leaders passed on enslaving indigenous people in favor of enslavement of Africans"

Maybe you should do some research instead of saying all Christianity. Because there was already Christians in Africa long before Islam and they belonged to ancient Orthodox Christian church. In fact Ethiopia is one of the oldest Christian nations on earth.

Linda I too become angry at times, especially when the role of religion comes into view. I imagine that the unanswerable questions of natural phenomena and the innate ability of humans to reach an altered state of consciousness inevitably led to behaviors that had to be ritualized; hence, the evolution of religion in all of its varied forms. The religions of Christianity and Islam, historically, have been the most obscene practitioners and proponents of the enslavement of fellow human. In Christianity (and you probably know this) the Papacy held that Africans had no souls and were thus useful as beasts of burden. In the Americas, church leaders passed on enslaving indigenous people in favor of enslavement of Africans. Yet, for all of its evil throughout its evolution as a World Religion, the Christian Church appears to be poised to take over the governance in many cities in the United States. Socities, in general, teach only those ideals that make itself look great. They hope that the dark side stays hidden from public consumption. You are to be commended, as a parent, for sharing knowledge with your daughter. There is an African proverb that I follow: Each One Teach One!...

Linda, has your daughter shared her thoughts with you concerning Darwin? Many years ago, in the mid 70's, my father tried to get me to consider Charles Darwin and Carl Sagan's scientific expression about our place in the universe. Unfortunately, I was close minded, sold out to a religious bent. Life's lessons, a descent education, and a love for learning after retirement helped me to see with new eyes. Fortunately for me, I was not afraid to question my belief system and proving "all things" included that which I once believed. That system of belief caused Charles darwin to be extremely cautious and exacting in revealing what he had proven to himself. His life will continue to impact the world as the exploration of scientific thought advances. I do my best to share what I uncover with members of my family and others who appreciate the path that I travel.

Lets not forget King Leopold of Belgium who was responsible for 10 million deaths in the congo region at the turn of the 20th century. Among the many hideous things they used to do was to chop people's hands off to prove they'd been killed. Quite often they didn't kill them but just chopped their hands off to claim the reward.

It's absolutely disgusting the way the white man has treated the African nation and the most amazing thing of all is, we're still doing it.

Hey Chief,
I dont think thing's will change any time soon as there are to many people not ready to listen to the scientist's, They have closed mind's and we also have the religious fraction to deal with. They dont allow evolution to be taught in school's even here in Scotland they dont even teach ( grand design) let alone Darwin. I also think if we were to go down the path of L1 and L2 and the tree of life there is far to much greed in the world to make a differance it's a case of I am alright Jack dont bother me. I have let my Daughter watch some of the evolution video's on here she is almost 18 and studing music at collage, but before she saw the video's she had never heard of Charles Darwin which I think is wrong, as it should be included in the school's curriclum everyone should have the chance to read Origin of the Species and decide for themself's in stead of going down the creation route. I stress these are my thought's on the issue and I am not knocking anyone's faith.

Linda, I appreciate your response but I would like to know your thoughts concerning the behavior of people if they were educated in the knowledge of the relevancy of haplogroup L1 and L2 on the human tree of life? If it were known by the vast majority of people on this planet, would they continue to despise the ROOT of their existence or would there be a change in attitude? Perhaps one of gratitude and respect? The Genome Project (Human DND Mapping)was a big event from 1990 to 2000. The Code of life was cracked and DNA markers authenticated the findings of paleontologists, archeologist, climatologist and geneticist that placed the Cradle of Life in East Africa. How will that information enter into future education endeavors? I suspect that nothing will change unless there is a grassroots effort launched to make this information know. This site helps and if you would invite others to watch DVDs that help enhance your education, we'll be on our way to changing mindsets.

First: The British were a part of the slave trade. This much is true. However, their role and scale in it has been blown out of proportion. It has been estimated that only 5% of all the slaves brought to the Americas where brought to the British colonies. The other 95% when to the French, Spanish and Portuguese colonies. But let's blame British for everything and ignore the obvious truths!

Second: Slaves were captured, enslaved and sold by other Africans. No one seems to care about their role in the slave trade. Even though they were the people who did the actually enslaving. Of course, there's no point blaming them since their countries have no money and can't be exploited today.

Third: The Arab slave trade existed for will over 14 centuries right up to present day. Perhaps a 100 times as many slaves were enslaved by Arabs. Yet no one seems to even notice.

Finally: Slavery was practiced by every tribe and races. No one is innocence when it comes to slavery.

I recommend watching http://www.viddler.com/explore.... It is an introduction to the Arab slave trade.

There will probably be few viewers of this documentary with little commentary. I hope I am wrong but as a descendant of enslaved Africans from Sierra Leone, my personal experiences cloud my perception. Most people just want to move on as if nothing happened. White people, in general, want to avoid the legacy of guilt but relish the privileges of growing up White in America. To me, it is amaziing that my ancestors survived the atrocities heaped upon them. But I have come to know that the existence of humanity, whereever humans are found, is because of the survival, over 100,000 years ago, of the ancestors of haplogroup L1 and L2 (The Human Family Tree: Genographic Project). Would it matter if more people knew their deep ancestry and connection to African people?

I learned a lot from this documentary. I never knew the true story of Afican American's untill today. Blessed Be Mr Robert Smalls. My own country Britain also caused untold suffering to the people's of India during the time of the Raj during Queen Victoria's time on the throne. I am Scottish so I dont class my self as British so I will refer to what Britain did in those time's, they went on to create Pakistan by thier usual meathod's of drawing line's in the sand, and when the Asian people came to settle in Britain in the 1960's they were horrified that those paki's where allowed to come and settle here. In 1913 they did the same with Palestine and look what is happening there to this day hang your head in shame Britain. I was brought up in a working class home and I went to secondary school in the late 60's early 70's and as I was being taught by middle class snob's and being female I was taught to fail if you get my drift what good was an education to me, I was only good for a factory and was going to get married and have children to keep the slave labour going for the upper classes. I however went to night school and studied and went on to become a nursing sister, I also married and had children, my only regret is that we were never told what was going on in politic's then as my life might have taken a differant path, but then again I doubt that would have happened either being a white Scot from an impoverished back ground I would never been able to afford the university fee's and neither would my Father.I am sorry for the rabble but it make's my blood boil at the unjust treatment that is still going on around the world today.

Ideally, all the wealth and land that was acquired via slavery should be seized, and the proceeds used to compensate blacks. So many of these southern holier-than-thou reactionaries came from families who gained their wealth and power via slavery. They need to have their noses rubbed in this fact at every turn. In the ultimate analysis, it is capitalism that drove all this, the political economy that is founded on and promote the basest of human values.
