Slavery in America began when the first African slaves were brought to the colony of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619. Slavery was practiced throughout the American colonies and slaves helped build the economic foundations of the new nation. The invention of the cotton gin in 1793 solidified the central importance of slavery to the South's economy.
