Slavery struggles in the Triangle
By: Sai Kurakula
Political effects of slave trade
Slaves resisted slavery by revolting against their owner, running away, or by doing small day to day resistances.
Revolts were very hard to create amongst the blacks because they were so overpowered by the whites.
Running away didn't become an option until northern states began to abolish slavery. But even then if a slave was running away to the north , the consequences were brutal.
The final way slaves resisted was through little everyday things. Salves would play dumb or slow down the work process, they would break tools or sabotage buildings, they would act sick or set fire to machinery. They would do not so big things to resist the harsh work they had as a slave.
