The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism

This is an earlier talk by Professor Baptist, delivered at the National Archives, on his book, The Half Has Never Been Told. It’s got good information, but I think the presentation I posted previously is a better one. That makes sense because he’s had more practice in delivering his presentations between the two.

The video’s description reads, “Edward Baptist explores the expansion of slavery in the decades after American Independence. A Book signing follows the program.”
