Teaching American History: Slavery and the Constitution - ALTERNATE LOCATION - 32143

The most serious criticism of the United States Constitution is it originated as a pro-slavery document. So what position on slavery is taken in the Constitution itself? Does the 3/5s Compromise, the fugitive slave clause, the delay on abolishing slave importation, and other provisions show evidence of pro-slavery exposure? Or are they necessary compromises designed to preserve the new Union until such a time as slavery could be abolished? We will examine the provisions in the Constitution that focus on slavery, considering those who argue that it is a pro-slavery document and those who do not. This program will be conducted as a conversation among peers, using primary documents as the only readings, and the Discussion Leader will be facilitating, not lecturing. Registrants are highly encouraged to read the documents shared prior to the session and to come with questions. Lunch will be provided.
