Join author and BHCC Professor George Walters-Sleyon as he shares on the topic of his latest book The Rush for Black Diamonds, Volume One, the first of two volumes. It explores the Transatlantic slave trade and its mutation into chattel slavery. Volume One focuses on the involvement of two prominent Enlightenment philosophers as the architects of the political, legal, economic, and philosophical justifications for the human trade and chattel slavery in the United Kingdom and the United States: British philosopher, John Locke and President Thomas Jefferson, both slave traders and slave masters. Used as a metaphor, Black Diamonds captures the exploration of Western nations’ rush for Black people across the Atlantic Ocean to be used as economic units and chattel property.

Presenter Dr. George Walters-Sleyon, Adjunct Professor, Behavioral Science Department
