TEACH IN: Slave Rebellions and Abolition in the Americas
July 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
From the 1500’s until the Civil War in the U.S. the Americas were rocked by dozens of major slave revolts. From Nat Turner’s revolt in Virginia, the Male Rebellion in Brazil, and Tacky’s War in Jamaica, enslaved populations creatively and tenaciously resisted the brutality of the mass forced labor that underpinned the rise of capitalism. In this class we will explore the history of some of the more notable rebellions and what it says more broadly about the cultures of resistance that emerged from people brutally ensared by the slave trade.
