Presented by Daytona State's own Dr. Nancy Duke. Florida, one of the founding members of the Confederacy, had one of the largest slave populations among the southern states. Slavery in Florida began soon after the arrival of the Spanish in 1513, and played a far greater role in Florida's history than anyone could ever imagine. From warriors and talented artisans to builders of cities, Africans played vital roles in shaping history. The schedule continues throughout the spring.
