What year were the first slaves brought to America and when did people start objecting to this practice?
Answer
In 1619, the first black slaves landed at Jamestown, Virginia, a community that was the first European settlement in America, established in 1607. Records indicate that the first formal protest by the white population against slavery was made by the Quakers of Pennsylvania in 1688.
