The Slave Trail of Tears

Location: uptown campus
Building:Woldenberg Art Center


During the fifty years before the Civil War (1820-60), close to one million people, enslaved African Americans, were pushed out of the Upper South (mainly from Virginia and Maryland) and forced to journey to the Deep South (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama) to work on the cotton and sugar plantations newly laid out there.

Edward Ball tells the story of this exodus, a migration twice as large as the wagon train journey that would carry half a million whites west, a movement twenty times bigger than the Native American "Trail of Tears" that led into Oklahoma.
