How would you answer this question
as an abolitionist reading these excerpts, how would you have used them in your struggle against the crime of slavery? focus on how you would make use of the descriptive language and the reality that selling human beings was a "business."
I would have to see the excerpts to give a proper answer lol
The Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal". Although that document was not legally binding, and was written during a time of slavery, it foreshadowed the direction the country was going. Your question starts with "these excerpts", and there are no excerpts.
I disagree with the foreshadowing. Non-whites were not seen as men at that time by most whites.
At that time, I believe one had to be an adult male, white, and own land to have any real say in politics or voting in general. By foreshadowing, I mean that the statement of us all being equal was made long before it was actually practiced.
