    Seeking records of Christianity & slavery in colonial New England

    Carole Gailor Newbie

      I am looking for primary sources with regard to the nexus of slavery and Christianity in pre-Revolutionary War New  England. I am interested in the justification of the churches for permitting slavery to exist without opposition in New England communities as well as whether slaves were subject to conversion and acculturation and whether African religious and/or spiritual influences remained in the Christianized slaves.
