The Curse of Ham is not a Biblical expression. The Bible actually describes the incident as a curse on the son of Ham, i.e. Canaan. The reference is found in Genesis 9 where Ham, one of the sons of Noah, saw his father's nakedness as he slept after drinking wine, and likely made fun of Noah as he related it to his brothers. When Noah awoke he cursed Canaan, the son of Ham. Over the past centuries this incident has been used by some to justify the enslavement of people in black Africa, believed to be descendants of Ham. This booklet explains the falsity of this assumption and describes what the curse actually meant.
