How an accidental encounter brought slavery to the United States

Family of first enslaved Africans in America marks 400 years

...before a crowd in the Tucker Family Cemetery in Hampton, Virginia.

5 things people still get wrong about slavery
We asked historians to debunk slavery’s greatest myths

1) The myth that slaves never rebelled
Miseducation surrounding slavery in the US has led to an elaborate mythology of half truths and missing information. One key piece of missing history concerns slave revolts: Few history books or popular media portrayals of the trans-Atlantic slave trade discuss the many slave rebellions that occurred throughout America’s early history.
