SLAVERY         Brand New Version

The plantation system in the 18th and 19th century south was founded on enslaving and subrogating thousands of decedents from African men, women, and their children.  The white planters of the 18th and 19th centuries became rich by denying the black man his freedom and his right to profit from his labor. The system justified denying the humanity to members of this black race treating them as nothing more than livestock.They were denied the existence to be human beings.

This is the true story of a young girl named Harriet Jacobs, who hid within a large plantation from her evil and depraved master in her grandmother's hot and tiny attic for 13 years! She fled into hiding to survive being repeatedly raped and enduring hard labor from sunrise to sunset. She was physically abused beginning when she was just a child. She possessed the unrivaled courage to risk her life to escape. After being taught to read and write by northern patrons, she wrote a book in 1861 telling about the horrors she had survived.
