Any books or research on African slaves committing suicide?
I don't know of any - but the kind of mind that runs this kind of thing is normally meticulous and orderly, and like the Nazi extermination camps, they often keep unbelievably detailed records. I am not sure any would have survived but I expect you should be able to find some plantation slave records still.
Why did you post this in the sandpit? Is slavery just a game to you or what?
Do you really think there would have been records of it?
I get that these owners were business people, but do you seriously think that they would have labeled the death a suicide, even if it was?
They would have simply considered it a loss and discarded it, as though a piece of garbage. You've got to be kidding?
Any statistics would be distorted. For the above reason.
And it would have been considered property crime too I guess, like in the military where attempted suicide is prosecuted as damage to government property.
Regardless of placement...this topic raises an important question..
