differentiate between the significant ways in which the lives of slaves in the South deviated from those of free and enslaved black people living in the North. Categorize both the types of jobs the slaves in the South performed and the hierarchy on the plantation that resulted. Next, determine the manner in which these communities operated in terms of family and social organizations and connected the slaves back to their West African roots.
examine the impact of free black communities in the North and the South on the freedom movements during the ante bellum period. Interpret the manner in which free black people maneuvered in a world where their status as “free” was tenuous at best, especially for those black communities that thrived in the South. Next, illustrate the manner in which these free black communities operated in terms of family and social organizations and connected the inhabitants back to their West African roots.
