Maury A. Bromsen Memorial Lecture: Andrés Reséndez, "The Other Slavery"
April 25, 2017
The John Carter Brown Library
Andrés Reséndez, Professor of History at the University of California, Davis, and author of The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America, delivered the 2017 Maury A. Bromsen Memorial Lecture. The Other Slavery examines the expansive system of bondage that targeted between 2.5 and 5 million Native Americans throughout the hemisphere in the centuries between the arrival of Columbus and the beginning of the 20th century. In contrast to African slavery, which targeted mostly adult males, the majority of these Indian slaves were women and children. Professor Reséndez was introduced by Neil Safier, JCB Director and Librarian, and Lin Fisher, Associate Professor of History at Brown University.
