When was slavery institutionalized?

The first slave owner on American soil was black. It was blacks who brought slavery to the US and blacks who demanded it be protected by law. African Anthony Johnson demanded that the court of the Virginia Colony declare a fellow African, John Casor, not an indentured servant but a "servant for life." Europe didn't have a system of slavery but Africa did - and it was robust - and it included enslaving whites long before the first blacks arrived in the Americas. On March 8, 1655, the court of the Virginia Colony sided with Anthony Johnson legalizing slavery in the US. Ironically Johnson, who had been a slave in Angola when sold to Europeans by his chief, was brought to the US as an indentured servant and freed when his term was up. He went on to become a major property holder in the US with white and black indentured servants.
