Last quote by Edward E. Baptist

Our goal is to ultimately collect all the runaway ads that have survived. They are these little windows. I call them the tweets of the master class. The purpose is to alert the surveillance system that was the entire body of white people in the South to help this individual recover this human property. There was a wave of anti-literacy laws. Slave owners knew if some men and women were literate, they could write passes to freedom.feedback

It's hard not to make connections with the history of race relations in the United States. The whites need to define themselves as the virtuous ones.”.
