Ned and Constance Sublette

In the powerful new book, The American Slave Coast: A History of the Slave-Breeding Industry, Ned and Constance Sublette discuss the difference in the cultures of slave-breeding versus slave importation in the United States and Cuba, with emphasis on the South’s fixation on acquiring Cuba as an outlet for the slaves it produced.

Ned Sublette is the author of four books, including The World that Made New Orleans and Cuba and its Music. The American Slave Coast, co-authored with Constance Sublette, was begun while he was a Patrick Henry Writing Fellow at the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience in Chestertown, Maryland.
