Overview of a speech regarding the history of American slavery. The speaker noted that American Indians had been at one time considered for slavery, but that they were not as suited for it as African captives. The speaker said that what was wanted was not so much emancipation as it was the "...eradication of the principles of slavery, and the prejudice against slaves, which existed in American breasts..." He wished for an end to slavery as well as the effects of slavery on a society that had grown strong from slave labor. (Includes MP3 audio file.)
