The recent comment by the rapper, Kanye West, characterizing slavery as a choice, highlights the misinformation and deliberate falsehoods that impede our understanding of American slavery. Inadequate, and in too many cases, non-existent instruction in American classrooms can be faulted for some of these shortcomings. Revisionist historians and Confederate apologists who have sought to minimize the brutality of American slavery and to challenge its racist underpinnings bear even more responsibility for our distorted view of this foundational part of American history. This course seeks to present an accurate view of American slavery.
