Several documents were printed to improve the number of casualties during the transportation of the Africans. One of these contributions was James Barbot Jr. who wrote the “General Observations on the Management of Slaves.” Resistant among the captives did occurred aboard ships as Barbot described one of his personal account of the revolt aboard Don Carlos. He argued that mistreatment of the African captives was the main reason they became desperate to escape the imprisonment. Although his suggestions appeared more humane in treating the African captives with proper care and nourishment, it was to keep the number of their prized captives alive during the transportation.

Slaves and servant had begun to revolt against the brutality of their masters by not doing the chores they were ordered to do. For this reason, new laws were assembled to cease the rebellion. Some of those laws included: “Law Makes Killing a Slave Legal” established in 1669 and the “Law Authorizes Force to Suppress Rebellious Slaves, Indians, and Servants,” established in 1672. These laws described if a slave resists his/her master they have a possibility of being killed. This was stated clearly in the description of the 1672 law, “…as it hath beene manifested…that many negroes…are out in rebellion…whome many mischeifs…dangerous...for the prevention…if any nergroe, molatto, Indian slave, or servant for life, runaway...it shall lawful for any person…to take him, upon the resistance…to kill or wound him.”

One difference between the autobiography and film were the childhoods of the two main characters. While Roots and the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass have numerous similarities, the differences of their childhood of the two characters, and the outcome of their lives and how it unfolds is more important. One similarity of the book and movie is attempting to escape. Both Kunta and Douglass failed miserably during their first attempt.

In the book of Philemon, many scholars differ in their opinion of why Paul wrote a personal letter to Philemon, the master to Onesimus. A couple of those reasons could be that Paul hoped that Philemon would release the slave so that he could work for him or that he wanted Onesimus to be treated better than before since slaves were treated harshly. Although, there were suspicions as to why Onesimus could have gotten himself into trouble. These reasons consist of him stealing property or money from his master, then accidentally running into Paul while he was in prison. The other reason consisted of him displeasing his master and leaving out to find Paul.

This act was passed by the US Congress in 1850 as part of the compromise of 1850. This act was on of the most controversial factors of the 1850 compromise and heightened the North’s fear of a slave power conspiracy. It required that all escaped slaves, upon capture to be returned to their masters and that citizens and officials form free states had to cooperate in this act. Bounties were often put on escaped slaves heads to help capture them. Oftentimes, free slaves were captured in free states because of this act and resold or returned to original masters.

Both the stories of Equitan and Guigemar invoke the debate between selfish love and selfless love. The character Equitan embodies the principles of chivalry, where he is “much admired and much beloved in his own land” (Marie de France 13-14). Although he embodies the ideal man for courtly love, Equitan is selfish when he enters relationships. Equitan pursues the seneschal’s wife and they enter an affair with each other. This affair is comprised of physical attraction and has no moderation at all.
Olaudah Equiano was an African American man in England during the late 1700s. His racial color alone automatically ascribed him as a slave during this time period. In 1789, Equiano wrote a memoir about his journey as a slave. At this time, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was taking place. Therefor slavery was very common, and it was not abnormal for a young child to be kidnapped and forced into slavery (Equiano 3).
“In this situation, I expected every hour to share the fate of my companions, some of whom were almost daily brought upon the deck at the point of death, which I began to hope would soon put an end to my miseries….” (Equiano 87). In this essay I will tell you about some things that you need to survive. Faith, resources, and fear are what I’m going to be telling you about. I will be using quotes from two stories I read that taught me about the hardships of survival.
The worst bearing of both Rowlandson and Equiano has to face was being separated from their own love ones. Rowlandson was separated from her family and relations when her village was attacked then eventually lost her only child that was with her. Nevertheless, Equiano also endured tormented pain when he was parted from his sister while she was the only comfort to him at once.
