The desire of being free resembled the awful conditions that some of them had. Nevertheless, numbers of slaves claimed that they would want to go back in time and visit their owners since they treated them well enough. A variety of slaves experienced various types of slavery and each of the stories represented unique lifestyles that each of them had. The slaves had not only described their working conditions, but as well as the Majority of the slaves suffered during the times they were enslaved while the rest had a fairly good time. The slaves that were being interviewed had various answers about whether or not they had hard times back then.
It is here that I think Douglass makes another significant step, that is when he creates protections for himself and his clan, or as I like to think of it, their own declaration of independence from the slave community. But, like all things thus far in Douglass’s life, things fell through, and he suffered the mean hand of a relentless slave system. Although Douglas had burned his fake protection papers in order to save himself and his allies, the declaration was still clear in his mind. Like a true revolutionary, he stuck to it and eventually experienced life unrestrained by the horrid slave community in which he came from. It truly is amazing how much Douglass went through in order to experience life outside of his own community.
Freeland he planned his first escape; he became discontent with his wretched condition under slavery. He of course could not forget his fellow friends and shared his plans with them. Douglass and four other slaves devised a plan to escape to the north. Each of the men could only dream of freedom. They discussed what possible adventures they would pursue together.
Once he escaped slavery he spoke out against it and wanted freedom for all not just himself. Frederick didn’t have to do all he did since he was already freed but despite the risks of being recaptured into slavery he still spoke out for those that couldn’t. 4. Body Paragraph 3: (a) There were many abolitionists who fought against slavery. There were the immediatists who fought to end slavery immediately, and the gradualists who wanted to abolish slavery by operating within existing legal system parameters.
It would forever unfit him to be a slave. He will become unmanageable, and of no value to his master. As to himself, it could do him no good, but a great deal of harm. It would make him discontent and unhappy.”(Douglass 20) If I had heard that spoken about myself I do not think that I could have sat and listened to him. This was not the first time that Douglass had seen or heard the whites talk about the slaves that way, but it forever changed him.
Nunu son was with the system because he was the head of all the slaves and was the one who had to punish the slaves if they got in trouble. Towards the end of the movie they plan a way to get out and Nunu’s son was not involved because he was a head slave and followed God. When they first started to pan out the attack and plan to get out shola did not want to help out but soon she did because she was getting abused by her master and at night she was raped. Shola’s love shango knew that Nunu’s son was going to be a problem and would get in there way so he made up a poison that would make him sick and hallucinate. In the end that turned out to be a problem when they were exacuting there attack, before they could attack and leave he started to attack his mother and killed her at the river.
“Atticus had promised me he would wear me out if he ever heard of me fighting any more.” (99) Scout thinks. Atticus tells Scout to ignore the comments, and let them say what they want. He seems invincible, until he is faced with Tom Robinson’s trial. He knows that he will not win this case, for the racism among the Maycomb residents is too strong. Yet he perseveres, trying to get an appeal from the court, on behalf of Tom Robinson.
Derrick Williams Prof. Sackley History 199 9/30/2011 “For my own part, I felt indifferent to my fate. It appeared to me that the worst had come (the separation of him and his family), that could come, and that no change of fortune could harm me.” Charles Ball was born into slavery. He encountered the same punishment and had to live the same hard and cruel life similar to any other slave. However, Balls story differs due to his never ending ambition to be active in his attempts to expose, change, and better the lives of slaves. As a young man, Ball was sold and separated from his wife and children to a slave trader.
Baca later states, while being in jail, “All the fights I’d won to prove I was a man didn’t matter; nothing mattered expect what I was going to do now. The longer I postponed the inevitable showdown, the more it looked like I was afraid and the stronger it made him.” (Page #) When Baca says him he is referring to the black man who comes off as threat to him so something has to be done before the worse comes to him. Being put in this predicament he has to prove he’s a man so he can feel accepted from the society in jail. Along with masculinity, Baca has a hard time dealing with abandonment. As a
Jim cares about Huck, and Huck realizes that everyone has feelings. When Jim gets captured, Huck has a very strong inner battle. He had been taught that doing something such as helping a slave escape would earn him a lifetime in hell. But once Huck begins thinking of all the things Jim has done for him, he soon decides that he would rather go to hell than let his friend endure a lifetime of slavery. Huck does everything he can to make sure Jim gets free.
