In this video Heimler takes you through Unit 2 Topic 6 of the AP U.S. History curriculum which is set in period 2 (1607-1754).

The dark underbelly of colonial life in America was the increasing dependence on the African slave trade. All British colonies depended on the labor of enslaved people, but the number or laborers was different in each region. New England held relatively few enslaved laborers, and the number increases as you travel south, the most abundant population being in the British West Indies.

However, even though this was the case for Africans sold into slavery, they also mounted serious movements of resistance. Some of the resistance was covert, and some was overt like the Stono Rebellion.

If you have any questions, leave them below and Heimler shall answer forthwithly.
