American Slavery Began in 1565, Not 1619: Note to The New York Times, Historians and Even Noam Chomsky

Both The New York Times and historians (even Noam Chomsky) persist in misstating history. The first slaves were imported in 1565, to St. Augustine, Florida. Not Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. Get it right, please, in honor of the 450th anniversary of that event, and the founding of St. Augustine, on September 8, 2015. Thank you.
