Evil Periods In World History
Slavery in America: 1619 – 1865
Holocaust in Europe: 1933 – 1945
Segregation in America: 1896 -1954
Distinction between indentured servitude and slavery.
“In 1619 the first black Africans came to Virginia. With no slave laws in place, they were initially treated as indentured servants, and given the same opportunities for freedom dues as whites. However, slave laws were soon passed – in Massachusetts in 1641 and Virginia in 1661 – and any small freedoms that might have existed for blacks were taken away.”
Humanity mustn’t allow these enormous evils to ever occur again. Review the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
