Slavery in America
A Brief History of Slavery
Fortunately, there were various people fighting slavery. One of the most prominent was former slave, Harriet Tubman. She founded the underground railroad, an operation that freed more than 300 slaves.
There were many spiritual songs the slaves sang. Look some up. One called "Follow the Drinking Gourd" is full of symbolism for directions on how to follow the underground railroad. Others were made to raise the spirits of the slaves.
Eventually, President Abraham Lincoln was elected. He had a wonderful beard, a wonderful hat, and a wonderful heart. He fought the Civil War, leading to some of the most casualties in American history. In 1863, he freed the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation, and was assassinated two years later. Black peoples' terrible lifestyle remained, though. There was a long period of immense racism in the United States.
Eventually, with help from Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and many others, we finally destroyed racism in the United States forever. Now, we live with black men and women with peace and tranquility.
Martin Luther King Jr.
This is Martin Luther King Jr., one of the most prominent anti-racism activists in American history.
Another anti-racism activist, Rosa Parks stood up (or, rather, sat down) for black rights.
This is a portrait of innocent people being taken from their home to work endlessly for nothing.
