Monroe and Crises of Slavery

Wednesday, February 11th 2015 - 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm at Ash Lawn-Highland
2050 James Monroe Parkway

In honor of African American History Month, scholar Nicholas Wood will give a lecture, free and open to the public, on James Monroe and slavery at Ash Lawn-Highland, the home of President James Monroe, Wednesday, February 11 at 4 pm.

This talk will focus on two episodes of crisis that James Monroe dealt with in executive capacities: Gabriel’s slave rebellion of 1800 during his governorship and the Missouri Crisis of 1819-1820 during his presidency. Both events demonstrated the threat slavery posed to the nation, in the form of domestic insurrections and sectional controversies that could destroy the union. In response to these crises, Monroe increased his support for suppressing the Atlantic slave trade and establishing a program of colonizing freed slaves in Africa. Yet Monroe’s own son-in-law and many other white southerners vehemently opposed these forms of moderate antislavery. Monroe struggled to advance antislavery while preserving the Union, efforts that were further complicated by recurrent diplomatic tensions with Great Britain.

About Nicholas Wood

Nicholas Wood received his PhD from the University of Virginia in 2013 and is a National Endowment for the Humanities postdoctoral fellow at the Library Company of Philadelphia. He is preparing a book manuscript, entitled Before Garrison: Antislavery & Politics in the New Nation, and has published articles on black disenfranchisement and the politics of slavery in the Journal of the Early Republic and the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. Wood has held research fellowships at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, the Henry Huntington Library, the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies, and the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington.
