Sailor: Conditions were bad enough for us plain sailors!

Slave: Nothing, I can assure you, could compare with what we endured.  We were treated

worse than animals, and millions of us died en route.

Speakers:

  • John Hawkins,
  • Slave,
  • Martin Luther King,

  • Teacher

Martin Luther King:

According to slave codes, slaves were not allowed to learn to read and write, carry weapons, meet in groups or move about without permission.

Joel: So I guess we’re back to where we started – talking about that weird definition of equality in the Declaration of Independence.

Teacher: What an amazing story! What a long way we have come since those dark days.

Martin Luther King:

Yes, but we should not become complacent. Racism is sadly not a thing of the past – there are still people who have prejudiced views.

Got something to discuss?
