This book addresses the claim that an American antebellum era anti-African reading of 'the curse of Canaan' story originated in rabbinic literature. By tracing the curse of Canaan's history of interpretation from the beginning of the Common Era to 1865, with particular emphasis on the neglected medieval period, this work examines this long-held false claim.
