Sinopse

" It is a mistaken opinion that prevails in some quarters that the slave does not understand the term— does not comprehend the idea of freedom. Even on Bayou Boeuf, where I conceive slavery exists in its most abject and cruel form—where it exhibits features altogether unknown in more northern States— the most ignorant of them generally know full well its meaning." (Solomon Northup) "In the following pages, the words slave and slavery are not used in the sense commonly understood by the abolitionists. With them these terms are contradistinguished from servants and servitude. According to their definition, a slave is merely a "chattel" in a human form; a thing to be bought and sold, and treated worse than a brute; a being without rights, privileges, or duties. Now, if this is a correct definition of the word, we totally object to the term, and deny that we have any such institution as slavery among us." (MISS PORT GIBSON) Two ways of thinking, one topic: slavery. Discover a selection of the main texts that supported the great debate over slavery. It includes the following texts: -12 years a slave -Uncle Tom's Cabin -The Way to Abolish Slavery -The Planter's Northern Bride -Cannibals All!
