From the first sale of 20 “negras” in Jamestown, Virginia, by a Dutch pirate in 1619 that marked the beginning of AfroAmerican history to 1865. At the end of the Civil War an estimated one million slaves had been imported to the United States. From the hot humid holds of the ships and the cotton and rice fields, a new musical form emerged. The music expressed the joys and sorrow, love and hate, hope and despair of the slave’s daily lives.
