"America's History of Slavery Began Long Before Jamestown"
"The arrival of the first captives to the Jamestown Colony, in 1619, is often seen as the beginning of slavery in America—but enslaved Africans arrived in North America as early as the 1500s." - Crystal Ponti. https://www.history.com/news/american-slavery-before-jamestown-1619. (History.com).
"Four hundred years ago this month, the first enslaved people from Africa arrived in the Virginia colony. To observe the anniversary of American slavery, The New York Times Magazine launched The 1619 Project to reframe America’s history through the lens of slavery. The project lead, reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones, joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss." PBS NewsHour. August 18, 2019.
