Join us in the first of a four-part series delving into the complicated and often contentious history of African Americans. In this first part we cover the transition from indentured servitude to slavery. We also cover the emergence of the “Middle Passage” and the creation and eventual hardening of racial divisions in the British colonies, most notably Virginia. We introduce you to Estavanico the Moor, an early explorer in the Southwestern US, Antony Johnson a former slave turned slave owner who is posthumously deprived of the right to own property, and the thousands of Africans who perished in the figurative and literal death of forcibly being transported across the Atlantic in the 18th century.
Join Hilary and Geoff as they discuss the legacy of Pearl Harbor. Elements of the Japanese Navy attacked the naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and FDR delivered one of the most famous speeches in presidential history on the 8th. How should we remember Pearl Harbor? Was is really a surprise or had the US and Japan been involved in a simmering conflict for some time? To learn more join us for this special episode of An Incomplete History.
