Discourses of Colonization

(p.299) Chapter Ten Discourses of Colonization
Deliver Us from Evil

Lacy K. Ford, Jr.

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the southern debate over colonization as three parallel discussions. One discussion centered on the disagreement within the upper South over whether colonization should be used to encourage gradual emancipation or simply as a means for reducing the region's large free black population. A second discussion revolved around the dispute between the upper South and lower South over whether colonization was a legitimate means for eliminating some problems related to slavery or merely an abolitionist wedge designed to undermine slavery. The third was a debate between southern and northern colonizationists over the ultimate purpose and preferred pace of the movement.
