In the fall of 1841, the slave ship Creole left Richmond, Virginia, en route to New Orleans with just over 130 slaves on-board. When it arrived, the ship’s captain was gone as well as most of the slaves. Jeffrey Kerr-Ritchie told the story of the Creole revolt and the insight it gives into the domestic U.S. slave trade. He is the author of Rebellious Passage: The Creole Revolt and America’s Coastal Slave Trade. The Virginia Museum of History and Culture hosted this program and provided the video. close
