    1. 1. Question and Answer Black Saga
    2. 2. Words of Wisdom In his response to no mention of African enslavement in the Phillis Wheatley Declaration of Independence, who wrote: "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever"? Maya Angelou "No more American in mournful strain/Of wrongs, and grievance unredress‟d complain,/No longer shall thou dread the iron chain,/Which wanton Tyranny with lawless John Adams hand/Has made, and which it meant t‟enslave the land" Many poems written by this poet described the continent of Africa and slavery. This 18th-century British religious leader founded Thomas Jefferson the Methodist church. In 1774, he published a book called Thoughts Upon Slavery, … “Here are several mistakes. For 1. Wealth is not necessary to the Glory of any Nation; but Wisdom, Virtue, Justice, Mercy, Generosity, Public Spirit ... the tears, and sweat, and blood of our fellow- John Wesley creatures.”
    3. 3. "There is nothing which contributes King George more to the development of the colonies and the cultivation of their soil than the laborious toil of the Negroes." Benjamin Rush A Quaker minister became a major abolitionist before the American Revolution with his publication, Some Consideration on the Keeping of Negroes…. The author noted, "Where slavekeeping prevails, pure religion and sobriety King Louis XIV of France declines, as it evidently tends to harden the heart and render the soul less susceptible of that holy spirit of life..." A distinguished Philadelphia physician and John Woolman chemistry professor published An Address to the Inhabitants of the British Settlements in America, Upon Slavekeeping. He charged that any "vices which are charged upon the Negroes in the southern colonies and West Indies. . .are the genuine offspring of slavery." Thomas Jefferson
    4. 4. By a ruling in this case, the Massachusetts Supreme Court abolished slavery in 1783…the court‟s Commonwealth vs. Jennison opinion stated "the idea of slavery is inconsistent with our own conduct and Constitution, and there can be no such thing as perpetual servitude of a rational creature, unless his liberty is forfeited…” Name the case Marquis de Lafayette In 1786, in a letter to John Adams, what hero of the American Revolution said, "I would never have drawn my sword in this cause of America, could Dred Scott vs. Sanford I have conceived that thereby I was founding a land of Slavery." At the Constitutional Convention in George Mason Philadelphia in 1787, in response to the adoption of Article 10, Section 9, which extended the slave trade for twenty years, this person argued, “As much as I value a union of all the States, I would not admit the Southern States into the Union, unless they agree to the discontinuance of this disgraceful trade, because William Lloyd Garrison it brings weakness, and not strength, to the Union.”
    5. 5. “I was soon put down under the decks, and there I received such a saluation in my Mary Prince nostrils as I had never experienced in my life: so that with the loathsomeness of the stench and crying together, I became so sick and low … I now wished for the last friend, death, to relieve me. . .” Olaudah Equiano “All slaves want to be free--to be free is very sweet... I have been a slave myself - I know what slaves feel... The man that says slaves be quite happy about slavery - The North Star that they don‟t want to be free - that man is either ignorant or a lying person...” "I am earnest--I will not The Liberator Ed: William Lloyd Garrison equivocate--I will not excuse--I will not retreat an inch--AND I WILL BE HEARD.“ Name the Newspaper. Francis Ellen Watkins Harper
    6. 6. Name the abolitionist who said, "Men do not go into slavery naturally--they don‟t go Sojourner Truth into slavery at the bidding of their fellowmen--they don‟t bow down their necks to the yoke merely by being entreated to do so...NO! Something else is necessary...” Frederick Douglass "Right is of no Sex--Truth is of no Color--God is the Father of us Ida B. Wells-Barnett all, and we are all Brethren." Name the newspaper. "Look at me! Look at my arms!" and Freedom’s Journal she held up her muscular right arm. "I could work as much and eat as much as a man--when I could get it-- and bear the lash as well! And ain‟t I The North Star a woman?"
    7. 7. "The sale began--young girls were there, Defenseless in their wretchedness, Roger Taney Whole stifled sobs of deep despair Revealed their anguish and distress…” Who wrote these words in The Slave Auction? Phillis Wheatley In the famous Dred Scott v. Sanford case, … "slaveholders had the right to 10th Amendment of the United take human merchandise to any part of the union, and that this Black man had States Constitution no right to even bring suit." "Neither slavery nor involuntary Francis Ellen Watkins Harper servitude, except as a punishment for crimes whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject 13th Amendment of the United to their jurisdiction.” States Constitution
    8. 8. "In every state many thousands [ex- slaves] were found without employment, Oliver O. Howard without homes, without means of subsistence, crowding into towns and about military posts, where they hoped to find protection and supplies. …” George Moses Horton "This place is nothing but a strife, Distressing all the peace of life, We nothing have to show; Let others scorn me or degrade John Mercer Langston I’ll take my hatchet and my spade Come, all, and let us go!" Frederick Douglass "If there is no struggle there is no progress ... This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without demand. It never did and it never will." Booker T. Washington
    9. 9. “The American people and the Government 14th Amendment Amendment of at Washington may refuse to recognize it the United States Constitution for a time, but the „inexorable logic of events‟ will force it upon them in the end; that the war now being waged in this land is a war for and against slavery…” Frederick Douglass "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, ... are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. 13th Amendment of the United No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or States Constitution immunities of citizens of the United States; …" “Why, sir, though we are not white, we have Henry McNeal Turner accomplished much. We have pioneered civilization here; we have built up your country; we have worked in your fields, … And what do we ask of you in return? ... We are willing to let the dead past bury its dead; John Mercer Langston but we ask you now for our RIGHTS…”
    10. 10. “All over the South and among the coloured people of the North, workmen in Henry McNeal Turner gold, silver, brass, iron, wood, brick, mortar, and the arts, are found doing skillfully and at usual wages the most difficult tasks... perhaps the most accomplished gunsmith among the Americans is a black man, an ex-slave... P.B.S. Pinchback “This is not time to fight only with your white hand, and allow your black hand to remain tied; Men in earnest don‟t fight with one hand, when they might fight with two, John Mercer Langston and a man drowning would not refuse to be saved even by a colored man.” “… we have rights as well as privileges Frederick Douglas to maintain and we must assert our manhood in their vindication... With this force as a political element, as laborers, producers and consumers, we are an Booker T. Washington element of strength and wealth…
    11. 11. "We wear the mask /that grins and lies It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes. Paul Lawrence Dunbar This debt we pay / to human guile with torn and bleeding hearts, / we smile, and mouths with myriad subtleties." Booker T. Washington "The wisest among my race understand that the agitation of questions of social equality is the extremist folly, and that progress in the enjoyment of all privileges that will come to John Mercer Langston us must be the result of severe and constant struggle rather than of artificial forcing." "The difference between us is very Frederick Douglas marked. Most that I have done and Said to Harriet Tubman suffered in the service of our cause has been in public, … You, on the other hand, have labored in a private way. I have Henry McNeal Turner wrought in the day--you in the night. ... "
    12. 12. "I can‟t offer you money, position or fame. The first two you have; the last, from the place Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. you now occupy, you will not doubt achieve. These things I now ask you to give up, I offer you in their place work-- hard, hard work--the task of bringing a people from degradation, poverty, and waste to full manhood." Booker T. Washington Said to George Washington Carver "Industrial education for the Negro is Booker T. Washington‟s hobby. The Negro knows that now, as then, the Frederick Douglas South is strongly opposed to his learning anything else but how to work." George Moses Horton “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flame of withering injustice...." Ida B. Wells-Barnett
