While most histories of slavery in early America confine themselves to the Southern colonies and the Caribbean, Professor Wendy Warren of Princeton University explains how the Atlantic slave trade drove the colonization of New England. She also brings to light the lives of the thousands of reluctant Indian and African slaves who found themselves forced into the project of building the Puritans’ “city on a hill.”
