African slaves

Engraving of native African slaves during the 19th century. Between the 15th and 19th centuries many Africans were shipped to the Americas, Arabia and India. The slaves were generally bought by European, American and Arabic traders from Africans along the African coast. These traders had in turn captured the slaves from the African interior. The first industrialised country to abolish the slave trade was Denmark in 1792. Other countries followed, although some just banned the import of slaves and did not free their current slaves until much later. Photographed from an 1880s book on the travels of Scottish explorer David Livingstone.

1 Obama Marks 150th Anniversary of End of Slavery- Full Speech


9 dec. 2015

President Obama Commemorates the 150th Anniversary of the 13th Amendment. He reflects on the fight for progress 150 years after the abolition of slavery.
Peter Huisman
Being white as snow I say Thank You Mr. Obama. Another great speech. With great bearing…sounds like an angel singing mr. Trump totally numb.
clinton oppong
Poignant and Thoughtful, history made this right, having a black president to give this speech on such a momentous occasion.
Laura Ly
Why was it so hard on the 150th anniversary of the 13th amendment to give a better than passing tribute to the anti-slavery movement which was generated, lead, activated and composed mostly by whites. White abolitionist activists like William Lloyd Garrison, founder of the American Anti-Slavery Society; writers such as John Greenleaf Whittier and Harriet Beecher Stowe are virtually all but forgotten and this would have been an opportune time to resurrect their memory. None of them even made it to Obama’s pantheon of “warriors of justice.” Only once he mentioned that there were whites preaching against slavery, yet it was none other than whites that led to the abolition of slavery throughout the world, including Africa. It almost seems as if Obama were disdainful of this group. He swiftly runs through in giving mention to the radical Republicans even though they were the main group that was behind the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments that aimed to assure full civil rights and equality for former slaves. Why is it so hard for this president to leave his ideological agenda aside to instead present to his countrymen a narrative that will unite the whole country behind the accomplishments attained by this nation in building a more free, just, and equitable society. Our ancestors brought us out, freed us from a world of tyranny, oppression, slavery in its various forms (inc. serfdom), institutionalized social inequality, and yet all Obama could press on with was his favorite “original sin” metaphor, forgetting or ignoring that slavery was the original sin of each and every society of the past, including all African societies where slavery has persisted to this very day.
The fact is the 13th Amendment never abolished slavery as it says “EXCEPT FOR PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME”. We know what followed, a resumption of slavery by another name. I can not get over the fact so-called educated Black people continue to help them promote the lie that slavery was abolished. Perhaps it is having to acknowledge that not much progress has been made for Black people in this country at all other than they now allow Black people to become part of the racist system based on the myth of white supremacy.
Kaptun's World
Freedom and equality for all is NOT easy to achieve but these are ideals that we must keep working towards. Every generation has to struggle on this path, because there are still those around who do not want freedom or equality for all; they just want it for themselves or their religion or their community. Our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights protect the right to free speech and religion for all. All means all. Our nation – America – is founded on these ideals. If anyone living in America has a problem with this, then they have not yet fully understood what America stands for. America is unlike any other country on earth. America stands against bigotry and discrimination. If anyone wants to practice bigotry or discrimination, then they are going against the founding principals of this great nation. There has been too much hate written and spoken online by too many people against one another that someone has to speak up to stop these kinds of behaviors; it’s like having a parent telling his kids to be polite, nice, and not get into fights. All humans are created equal and should be treated equally. No one is superior or inferior to another. That is the basis of equality. Who is better to speak up as a leader than our president? Leaders are supposed to speak up at times of conflict in order to keep peace and civility. Leaders are supposed to remind us what behaviors are wrong and what is right. An American President is supposed to remind its people of these basic American principals in order to keep all of its people on track. We all learnt in school that if we don’t study or remember history then we are doomed to repeat it. Thank you for the speech Mr. President!

2 Historic Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


12 feb. 2015

EDWARD BAPTIST on his controversial new book, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism-how slavery in the 100 years after American independence drove the rise of the United States to a world power.
Nite Tyme
This guys is telling the truth!! Nobody wants to discuss this and it needs too be. 
Faith D
One thing that isn’t being discussed is forced breeding and sexual violence. 
Warren Leming
“the softer interpretations of….slavery?”Thats a tough one, as the host points out….and what emerges is the concentration camp aspect of the romantic “old plantation” of the mystified Southern Past. The soft ball historians have been legion…and its good, citizens. to see that the truth…albeit slowly and painfully – is just beginning to emerge. The old South was a horror show built on rape and torture- not a Gone With the Wind fantasy. 
That this, the unspeakable brutality of slavery, surprises anyone is shocking. Americans are notoriously ignorant of their own history, but that educated people, a reviewer for “The Economist,” lack the education, experience and imagination to apprehend this debased state of humanity, is the most disturbing thing of all.

10 The Slavery Debate: Why C.L.R James & Eric Williams were righ


24 jun. 2015

In this engaging lecture with author James Heartfield filmed by WORLDbytes volunteers, we learn why Eric Williams & C.L.R. James critical understanding of the history of slavery’s abolition was right, and in its day considered shocking. British parliamentarians, anti-slavery campaigners and do-gooders from Buxton to Wilberforce were certainly not the key drivers of slavery’s demise. As Williams argued, abolition made economic sense. C.L.R James was no fan of reparations either, and we learn that three historic attempts at compensation were a complete disaster and they always will be Heartfield argues. Like ‘apologies’, reparations always maintain power relations, the authority and moral superiority of the giver over the recipient. The contemporary ‘feeling guilty about slavery’ fad Heartfield explains is degrading too and nothing more than self-indulgent narcissism, it doesn’t fix anything and fails to deal with the present entirely.

13 Edward Baptist: The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


Back to menu

5 mei 2016

Why is it so important to revisit the history of slavery in America, nearly 150 years after it ended?

In The Half Has Never Been Told (Basic Books, Sept., 2014), historian Edward Baptist argues that slavery was at the heart of the development of early 19th-century capitalism. By 1850, American slaves were worth $1.3 billion, one-fifth of the nation’s wealth. And slavery not only enriched the South but also drove the industrial boom in the North, eventually leading to the modernization of the United States.

His book includes intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, presenting a powerful new interpretation of American history. Baptist’s extensive research and insights recognize the full legacy of the millions who suffered in bondage. It forces us to remember the violence at the root of supremacy, but it also reveals a culture that sustains America’s dreams of freedom.

14 Freedom and slavery: the birth of capitalism

Back to menu

30 jan. 2019

In this talk from the 2018 Revolution Festival, Josh Holroyd discusses the origins of the capitalist system, the violent and contradictory revolution it carried out across the world, and the implications these hold for the fight against capitalism today.

As Josh explains, the society in which we live is often presented as something eternal; a natural expression of human nature and common sense. But the reality could not be further from the truth.

Capitalism – a system based on competition and production for profit – has in fact existed for only a few hundred years. It is only a brief and unique episode in the history of humanity.

And far from being the organic product of human nature, the birth of the “free” market required the violent overthrow of the entire existing economic, social and political order. It brought with it the greatest wave of dispossession and enslavement the world has ever seen.

True freedom, therefore, can only be brought about by breaking with the anarchy of the capitalist market and introducing a socialist plan of production based on needs, not profits.

26 Booker T. Washington – Up From Slavery | Read by Ossie Davis (1976)


26 nov. 2018

Up from Slavery is the 1901 autobiography of American educator Booker T. Washington (1856-1915). The book describes his personal experience of having to work to rise up from the position of a slave child during the Civil War, to the difficulties and obstacles he overcame to get an education at the new Hampton Institute, to his work establishing vocational schools—most notably the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama—to help black people and other disadvantaged minorities learn useful, marketable skills and work to pull themselves, as a race, up by the bootstraps. He reflects on the generosity of both teachers and philanthropists who helped in educating blacks and Native Americans. He describes his efforts to instill manners, breeding, health and a feeling of dignity to students. His educational philosophy stresses combining academic subjects with learning a trade (something which is reminiscent of the educational theories of John Ruskin). Washington explained that the integration of practical subjects is partly designed to reassure the white community as to the usefulness of educating black people. – wikipedia

32 Slavery, Race and the Origins of American Freedom


8 nov. 2013

Slavery was central to the making of the early modern Atlantic world, particularly in European colonization efforts across the Americas. In English North America, as elsewhere, racial thought emerged to codify slavery in the thirteen colonies. But how could race and slavery exist and persist in the revoluntionary world of the late 18th century? Haiti and the United States provide instructive and contrasting examples: a democratic movement that abolished slavery and an independent republic that staked its new found freedom on slavery. Lecturer Stephanie Smallwood is the Dio Richardson Endowed Professor in History at the University of Washington and the author of the prize-winning book, Saltwater Slavery: A Middle Passage from Africa to American Diaspora in the Americas.

36 History of Arab Slave Trade


27 okt. 2019

In 1842CE, the British Consul General in Morocco wrote a letter to the Sultan to ask him if he had taken any measures to stop slavery or at least, slave trade. The sultan replied that he will not do anything about it because it has been the norm since the time of the sons of Adam and no sects of Islam are against it. Hence, he will not permit anything the Qur’an forbids and will not make unlawful anything that the Qur’an has allowed. In the Sultan’s reply, we see the simplest justification or at least, excuse, for almost 1300 years of slavery in the Islamic world.

38 Islam’s Dark History of Slavery (Whitewashed and Forgotten)


5 sep. 2018

We always talk about how Europeans enslaved immense numbers of Africans. We usually don’t talk about the parties actually involved or not involved in that slave trade. What we also don’t talk about are other slave trades that were even bigger and lasted longer, like the Eastern (Islamic) Slave Trade.
Western media choose selective moral outrage, and while Western schools teach their youth about their own faults, the Islamic World is far from being honest. Therefore I choose to talk about this dark history, and I hope to spread more awareness so that more and more people can know and talk about the cruelties of the Islamic world.

Voice: Walter B. Hoye II


Just when you think you have grasped the depth of the legacy of slavery that lingers in our nation’s DNA, a fresh reminder renews the grief. As we learned more about the lives of Black American children during their enslavement in the United States of America our hearts brake again and again and again.

49 The Little-Known History of Slavery in California: Lynette Mullen at TEDxEureka


1 jan. 2013

Lynette Mullen is a local freelance writer and project manager. A chance discovery of court records from 1862 ignited her passion for history; learning about the indenture of Native Americans in California during the gold rush further fueled this interest. She is honored to be able to share this imformation with the TedX audience.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

31 mrt. 2019

In 1860, as the American Experiment threatened to explode into a bloody civil war, there were as many as four hundred thousand slave-owners in the United States, and almost four million slaves. The nation was founded upon the idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

51 Urban Slavery at the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters


9 dec. 2018

Cosmos Mariner Productions produced this new short video for Telfair Museums’ Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters in Savannah highlighting the groundbreaking things the museum is doing to tell the little-known stories of the enslaved people who toiled behind the scenes in this sumptuous Southern mansion. 
Our crew cataloged the meticulous preservation work carried out by experts inside the Owens-Thomas House’s slave workspaces, interviewed scholars who have conducted original research into the identities of the enslaved individuals, and even painstakingly re-enacted the hours-long culinary tasks and backbreaking laundry work they performed here more than a century and a half ago. 
We are very proud of our film, and we hope that, after you’ve enjoyed it online, you’ll visit the museum yourself to see the wonderful new exhibit in person!

52 Unfinished Business (Britain’s Slave Trade Documentary) | Timeline


12 jun. 2017

Unfinished Business looks at how Liverpool became the greatest slaving port in human history. 
This is the untold story of the greatest slaving nation in history. Up till now, Britain’s place in the history of slavery has been as the country that abolished the international slave trade. 
Britain’s Slave Trade reveals the shameful truth behind this liberal facade, showing how the economic, social and cultural life of Britain would have been unrecognisable without slavery. Britain’s Slave Trade explains how a middling European power transformed itself into the ruler of the waves, tracing the impact this had on the British way of life and taking in the Industrial Revolution, the beginnings of Empire and the birth of modern racism along the way. It also unearths startling evidence showing how many families that think of themselves as ‘pure’ English stock are in fact descended from slave ancestors.
