The novel The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead is full of ahistorical elements. In a book about slavery in America, his use of ahistorical elements results in a commentary on racial discrimination and abuse in a unique, narrative way. He portrays every state differently, using each of them as an example of a different type of discrimination. South Carolina is represented as a “progressive” and modern state, with new and innovative ideas on how to treat slaves. It even has the Griffin Building to represent its modernism, even though that wasn 't built historically until 1910.

As historical documents, the slave narrative serves as a lens to the evolution of white supremacy in the South in the eighteenth century through the twentieth century Jim Crow South to the disfranchisement of Blacks today. These narratives give voice to the generations of Blacks who may not have had their stories told because any evidence of what occurred was destroyed or was told from the oppressor’s perspective. In William Wells Brown’s Clotel; or, The President’s Daughter: Narrative of a Slave Life (1853), the author shows the dilemma of the African American through the mulatto character. Brown’s narrative acts like an instrument to project the propaganda of the abolitionist by disclosing the brutal institution of slavery. The narrative develops around explicitly, powerful scenes that show the many experiences of the mulatto in the antebellum era through the social constraints that bind her.

The title of the document being analyzed is David Walker’s Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World. This document was written as a book but, for the purpose of this lesson, condensed and placed only portions of two of the four original articles written in 1829. Around the time that this Appeal was written, numerous events paved an altered future for the citizens of the United States. In 1827, race riots erupted throughout Cincinnati, Ohio, resulting in over a thousand African Americans to flee to Canada.
The terms, Jezebel and Mammy, were created to explain or rationalize the treatment of the female slave. The Jezebel was considered a loose, ungodly, and over sexualized slave women who seduced the slave owners and a Mammy was a matronly, virtuous female slave who was superior as a homemaker and nurturing maternal figure. The Jezebel was despised and the Mammy was revered. According to the reading material, the young Jezebel used her sexuality to gain favor of the slave owner. In contrast, the elderly Mammy was asexual and served her master because she loved them as family.
