According to Wikipedia, "Slave breeding in the United States became a common practice among slave holders and plantation owners as a result of several factors, including fears of rebellion from the increasing numbers of newly arrived slaves from Africa, and the economic impact caused by newly passed laws that restricted or eliminated the importation of slaves to Britain and the United States."

Many African Americans have mixed-raced ancestors. We will discuss the best genealogical resources to document these ancestors.

Join Host Antoinette Harrell and Co-Host Robin Foster for this open discussion on slave holders in the slave breeding plantations.
