Essay on Slavery.


Our unit on slavery has addressed the origins of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, the Middle Passage, the growth of slavery in British North America and the United States, and the conditions of slavery in the America’s. We have read several slave narratives that explore  various aspects of the institution. It’s time to put this knowledge to the test and assess its meaning for ourselves.


The essay you write will be your statement on the meaning of this history. Three to four pages double spaced with citations. Footnotes do not count as text.


Please use Chicago Style citation format for footnotes or endnotes. No bibliography is required. Please include a cover page with a title.
