Annual Lecture: The St. Louis Slave Trade in the Era of Robert Campbell

Sunday, April 9, 2017 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

FREE

The 2017 Annu­al Lec­ture will be pre­sent­ed by Dr. Ken­neth Winn, His­to­ri­an and For­mer Archivist of the State of Missouri. 

Dur­ing the 1850s St. Louis’s pre­em­i­nent slave trad­er Bernard Lynch han­dled the trade for St. Louis’s elite. While Lynch sold slaves local­ly, he sold more “down the riv­er” to places like Natchez and New Orleans. Most wealthy St. Louisans became involved with slav­ery in one man­ner or anoth­er, includ­ing. Robert Camp­bell. This talk unveils pre­vi­ous­ly unknown infor­ma­tion about Bernard Lynch’s per­ni­cious trade, and puts Robert Campbell’s slave­hold­ing into the con­text of its time.
