The Fine Print Book Club presents Slavery’s Metropolis: Unfree Labor in New Orleans During the Age of Revolutions


by Rashauna Johnson

In the early 19th century, slaves made up one-third of the New Orleans population. In contrast to the typical conception of rural plantation slavery in the emergent Deep South, daily experiences of slavery in New Orleans were global, interconnected, and transient, a function of New Orleans’s location at the crossroads of Early America and the Atlantic World. Slavery’s Metropolis uses slave circulations between 1791 and 1825 to map the sociocultural history of enslaved people in New Orleans, using the concepts of space and place as a lens for discussion. Johnson is a previous winner of THNOC’s Williams Prize, and currently teaches at Dartmouth College. Time listed is in Central Time Zone.
