Texas History and Antebellum Slavery

The Africanist Presence in the Colony and Republic of Texas

There is a significant body of documentation related to antebellum slavery and the presence of Africans and African Americans during the colonial, Revolutionary, and early republic periods in Texas.  This exhibit is the creation of graduate students in the Department of English at UTA who participated in bringing to light the fuller extent to which a number of university special collections  and other archives reveals the African-American presence in Texas, from the 1820s till the beginning of the Civil War.  The project is supervised by professor Cedrick May, of the University Of Texas at Arlington Department of English.
