This seminar is the third in a series of online discussion-based seminars on slavery in the United States. Each will focus a theme related to slavery and its enduring legacy - all stemming from the system’s characteristics in the United States. The primary sources used in this series draw from Teaching American History’s Core Document Collection: Slavery and Its Consequences. Session Three will focus on arguments made by abolitionists calling for an end to the system and those made by defenders of the so-called “peculiar institution.”
Each book in our Core Document Collection contains original sources related to a theme, an introduction authored by the scholar curating the book, study questions for each document, and additional resources to help students and teachers deepen their understanding of the topic.
