Write a two page essay to address the following questions as completely as you can:
How was slavery crucial to the development of capitalism in the United States? Explain this as best you can in your own words (18 point)
Describe at least two ways the author connects labor practices under slavery to features of U.S. capitalism today (18 points).
Share your reactions to this piece and why. For example, what, if anything, surprised you? What does the article suggest about our current employment relations system? (14 points).
Your answers to these questions should be at least two typed, double-spaced page using 12-point font (not counting these instructions). Use complete sentences in your answers; bulleted lists will not be accepted.
Note: Grading is based on demonstrated understanding of the reading, addressing all parts of the assignment, thoroughness of your answers and support provided, and clear writing free of errors. You are not expected to do any outside research for this activity; rather, the goal is to carefully read the article and reflect on how it relates to class.
