Slavery in Black and White : Slavery and Indentured Servitude

In this episode, Slavery in Black and White: The Development of Race Based Slavery in the British North American Colonies.

While slavery is nothing new in human history, the phenomenon of race based slavery is radical transformation from slavery as it had been practiced up to the point of the Atlantic Slave Trade.
