June 2, 2022—As lots of you who comply with this weblog know, I’m within the throes of writing a ebook on Why American Slavery Endured. I’ve posted a collection of components from my analysis on the weblog, as you could have seen. I’ve additionally given two class collection regionally on the topic, however neither have been out there to potential college students on-line. (My promo for these lessons is offered right here.)
That has modified. On June 13 and June 20, I will probably be lecturing on this topic by zoom on the Lifelong Studying program sponsored by Lengthy Island College’s Hutton Home. Folks from wherever can go browsing to those lessons and be part of the dialogue. They begin at 1 pm Jap Daylight Time.
I consider this dialogue is of essential significance not just for coping with the continuing battle over race in our nation, but in addition in mild of the upcoming 250th anniversary of the delivery of our nation, The Declaration of Independence. A truthful historical past of the battle over slavery within the founding period is a pre-requisite for unifying our folks round that upcoming celebration.

The category collection prices a bit of cash, however I promise to make it full of life, to not point out provocative. Right here is the related info to enroll. You’ve got just a few days.
