Thomas Jefferson's essay reflects the social conditions in America in the late 1700s. His words were written as part of a series of responses to questions by a French aristocrat who was secretary of the French legation to the United States. The "evils" in the title link to a series of then commonly held tropes portraying Negroes as inferior. The essay also demonstrates forces at work that would build and ultimately explode in the U.S. Civil War.
