Slavery--Sifting through the grey areas
Every slave experience is different, and the institution of slavery is troubling enough that it seems unfair to generalize about it. However, we will have to write about the conditions of slavery going forward, so we need to figure out some way to compartmentalize the experience.
What are the conditions that shape the slave experience? How does gender, location, and age play in? What role does the master play in this process?
There is no right or wrong answer here, but what would be helpful would be examples from at least two of the readings to get a better sense of perspective.
