event description

African slaves were transported to America and around the globe and provide free labor – period! The economic engine of the slave trade helped to fuel not only America’s but the world’s prosperity. Slave catchers profited on the slave they caught. Slave sellers profited on the slaves they sold. Slave owners profited on the slaves they forced to labor for free. Merchants  who supplied materials profited on clothing and food fro slaves. Everyone made money off of slaves except for Black folk. Slavery continued now in albeit a different form – sports!

In “The New Plantation: Black Athletes, Black Labor, White Wealth”  Griot Kevin Russ takes a critical look at and deconstructs the post-emancipation phenomenon of exploitation of Black Athletes and labor creating unparalled white wealth.
