Trouble of the World

Zach Sell

University of North Carolina Press

Following the end of the American Civil War, former slaveholders turned not only to new sites of empire outside of the continental United States but more generally toward projects to continue the dispossession of formerly enslaved people within the continental empire, engaging in new land struggles against freedpeople. This chapter examines how the white supremacist legal and economic ordering of Black enslavement through white real estate also justified land ownership through the rule of law and practice of settler empire that enabled and protected the settler as slaveholder.
