A Short History of Slavery

Slavery didn’t start in 1492 when Columbus came to the New World. And it didn’t start in 1619 when the first slaves landed in Jamestown. It’s not a white phenomenon. The real story of slavery is long and complex. Candace Owens explains.

Make sure you watch the 5 minute video... you might be surprised!

I answered "not very well versed".

It was pretty lightweight, and seemed like a whitewashing of slavery, with several factual errors.

Does she have any academic qualifications to speak on the subject? Is she a historian of slavery?

I'd be interested to see a list of her academic publications in the field.

Candace Owens - Wikipedia

In this Wikipedia site, they include her history as well as numerous other channels of her various publications, podcasts, etc.

She's intelligent, does her homework, knows the facts and spells them out time and again. 

Many Democrats hate her because she speaks the truth. But she knows what she's talking about and will go into a dead heat debate with anybody willing to debate her. 

She's like the "Black Woman" rendition of "Ben Shapiro" if you ask me.

She's straight and to the point.

Here is Candace Owens defending herself against two white female Democrats who attempt to demoralize her in a Senate hearing...

Watch how she handles herself. She is quite intelligent and well knowing of the facts as well as being harassed by the Democrats ever since she changed her affiliation from Democrat to Republican!

And please do watch it to the end because you will learn a lot about her!

Here is another interesting conversation with a left wing Democrat and I think Candace handled herself pretty well.

She knows what she's talking about, she will defend her position with irrefutable proof, and most people who attack her wish they didn't.

This is her defending herself in front of Congress and boy do they regret they pounced on her... 

She put Nadler and Liu in their places defending her comments...

Here's a TedX talk about a free town.

African roots in Latin America: Palenque (Colombia) | Armin Schwegler | TEDxUCIrvine

This talk illustrates how linguistics and population geneticists have recently managed to reconstruct the precise African roots of descendants of African slaves that were transshipped some 400 years ago from Black Africa to Latin America. The talk focuses on Palenque (Colombia), where special African traditions and an unusual creole language have been preserved to this day.

Professor Schwegler’s research emphasizes the study of Latin America from a linguistic, social, and historical perspective. For three decades, this has led him to explore in depth the precise African origins of Hispanic communities whose roots are found in the transatlantic slave trade. Using population genetics (DNA) research to complement humanistic investigations, his work shows that “lost history” can indeed be reconstructed with precision. To that end, he has traveled widely and afar, and published several books and over 60 research articles

Here's a guy talking about his great great grandfather.

The Audacity of Robert Smalls | Michael B. Moore | TEDxStMarksSchool

Michael B. Moore shares the story of escaped slave Robert Smalls, his great-great grandfather. Smalls commandeered a Confederate Naval vessel, freeing his family and two others. But Small's life story doesn't end there. Prepare to hear one of the least well-known, most important stories of the Civil War.
