Examine the neglected story of slavery that occurred throughout the American colonies, and later states, in the North. Northern slavery was more urban than in the South, and large scale farming (plantations) were far less common in the region. Enslavement in the North began in 1626 and did not completely end until the passage of the 13th Amendment at the end of the Civil War. The class will outline what slavery in the North looked like, how it ended, and why collective forgetting of its existence was so extensive.
