Eighteenth Annual Summer School

July 18 - July 23

$1077 – $1807

“Remembering  the Southern Tradition in the Face of  Woke Politics”

St. Christopher Conference Center, Seabrook Island, South Carolina

July 18-23, 2021

 

TOPIC: The “official teaching” that the War was about slavery is persuasive only because it hides the North’s racism and refusal to acknowledge its responsibility for the origin and continuation of slavery, which made a national policy to end it impossible. And it exaggerates the South’s commitment to slavery by failing to see that slavery was an evolving institution and that the South had the moral resources to abolish it in a reasonable amount of time.

Hiding these conditions is to be expected because Americans tend to think about slavery ideologically (not in genuine moral terms) and because bringing those conditions to light would throw into question the moral and constitutional legitimacy of the North’s invasion—not motivated to free slaves—that cost a million lives. Join us for a thoughtful discussion of these and related topics.
