The Emancipation Proclamation
John will discuss the history of slavery in the world, the type of belief system that leads to slavery, a comparison of slavery in America with that of other nation states. He will examine the acquisition, transport, and sale of enslaved persons along with the life of and distinctions between the types of enslaved people. This program will also address the perceptions of and rebellions by enslaved people, the role of slavery in the Civil War (with a focus on the Emancipation Proclamation), and the costs we are still paying for its practice.
