    • Thesis Statement
      • The thesis can be one or two sentences!
      • Example : During the early years of America, slavery experienced growth in the South and a decrease in the North as a result of economic advances and new ideological developments. Out of these changes, both free and enslaved blacks responded in both violent and nonviolent manners.
    • Document A
        • “ ... All indentured servants, Negroes, or others... are able and willing to bear Arms...”
            • Black enlistment
        • Proclamation of November 1775 - offered freedom to slaves who abandoned their rebel masters and joined the British
        • Increase in the number of free African Americans
    • Document B
      • “ ... We have been deprived of enjoying the profits of our labor...”
      • “ ... We are not allowed the privilege of freemen... Yet many of our color have cheerfully entered the field of battle...”
      • Regardless of being free, blacks were still not treated as equals
    • Document C
      • Slavery in the North decreases significantly
      • Far higher concentration of slavery in the South

      • Importance of religion in black communities
          • Hope and Community
    • Document E
      • “ There is much gratitude due from our color towards the white people...”
          • Growth in abolitionism
      • “ ... Much depends upon us for the help of our color more than we are aware; if we are lazy and idle, the enemies of freedom plead it as a cause why we ought not to be free...”
          • Action must be taken to make changes
    • Document F
      • “ I asked my master one time if he would consent to have me purchase my freedom. He replied that he would.”
          • Slaves allowed to purchase their freedom
      • Slaves pursued freedom through working to pay for it
      • Showcases a slight shift in social ideology
    • Document G
      • “ ... Mr. Prosser’s Gabriel wished to bring on the business as soon as possible.”
          • Eagerness for slave revolts
      • “ ... I read in the Bible where God says if we will worship Him we should have peace in all our land...”
          • Religious inspiration to take action
    • Document H
      • “ ... One cent only, from each inhabitant of the State... establishing colonies on the coast of Africa...”
          • Many sought refuge elsewhere
      • “ ... To open a door for the gradual emancipation of the slaves... an effectual barrier against the continuance of the slave trade...”
          • Whites supported the freedom (and to some extent, relocation) of blacks
    • Document I
      • “ [(B)lacks must] bear up under the daily insults we meet... We are shamefully abused... Arrows of death are flying about our heads.”
      • “ ... Cuts and placards descriptive of the Negro deformity, are every where displayed...”
      • Discrimination is VERY prominent and equally dangerous
    • Document J
      • “ ... What our friends have said or done for us... do not satisfy the Americans...”
          • Tensions between whites and blacks
      • “ We must and shall be free I say, in spite of you...”
