Recaptured Africans (book discussion with author Sharla M. Fett)

In celebration of Juneteenth, commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S., history professor Sharla M. Fett examines the 19th-century march toward abolition. Before the Civil War, as the government worked to suppress the import of slaves (banned by Congress in 1808), the U.S. Navy seized about 2,000 captured Africans from illegal slave ships and took them to temporary camps in Key West and Charleston. Fett looks at the social world of those “recaptives.”
