Article in The Nation about “Traces of the Trade”Posted March 14th, 2008 by Tom
You can read a terrific new article in The Nation (web only at this point), Tracing Slavery’s Past, by Te-Ping Chen, that focuses on Traces of the Trade within the larger context of discussions (or lack thereof) about race in the United States.
And rather than comment on this article, I refer you to my cousin James DeWolf Perry’s comments at his blog, Impertinent Questions.
