The Role of Cotton in Slavery with Frank Marlowe
Saturday, Feb. 17, 1:00-2:30

Cotton; The Reason for Slavery in the United States

 

Cotton produced by slaves in the American South made the United States the low-cost producer and the leading source of raw material for the world’s mills until the Civil War interrupted its exportation.  After the war, cotton growers used their control of legislatures in the southern states to keep former slaves working for very low cost by means of Jim Crow laws and legally sanctioned intimidation, which were finally broken down by the civil rights movement in the nineteen sixties.  This talk will explain slavery’s role in introducing the United States to industrial capitalism with its enormous wealth and disturbing inequalities that are with us today
