About this Item

Title

  • African slave trade in Jamaica, and comparative treatment of slaves : read before the Maryland Historical Society, October, 1854.

Summary

  • Sheppard looks at the role of England in promoting slavery in North America. He concludes that the effects of slavery depend not only upon its existence but also upon the manner in which it is instituted, as shown by a comparative study of slavery in the U.S. and Jamiaca. He also sees the experiment in Liberia as crucial for the productive future of the black race.
