The Infamous History of Slavery

71 pages1 hour


Slavery has an infamous history in the United States because it contradicts the history the American struggle for democracy, equality and justice for all in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It contradicts the American struggle against British domination, taxation without representation. Our Founding fathers saw no rights, justice and equality for Black people. They saw no freedom and voted across the board for the continuation of slavery; a system that imprisoned in bondage of laboring for whites for the duration of each Black persons life. It subjected blacks, to constant violence, murder, rape and imprisonment, for slavery was a cruel and inhumane system, which people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and all those other great men shouldve never supported; but they did!

History shows that Blacks, abused, kidnapped from Africa, enslaved, rights taken, forced to labor for free until death; stood and fought with their enslavers, against the Indians, throughout the frontier during Colonial history, also in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnamese War, and the War in Iraq and the War in Afghanistan. Blacks fought gallantly but this history has been invisible in most American History books, not told, and denied throughout the history of America. I wish to expose that history give people a glimmer of the truth that though slaves, Blacks like the White colonist too wanted freedom, justice and democracy in America as citizens!
