Olaudah Equiano was an active abolitionist back in England. He is one of the people that spoke out against the English slave trade and lectured about how cruel British slave owners were. The reason why Equiano wrote this was to shine a light on the cruel ways he and his people were being treated. Throughout the document, Equiano had talked about the fear he had towards the way he was watching people be treated and the fear he had for his countrymen, ” my situation was not so desperate: but still, I feared I should be put to death… I could not help expressing my fears and apprehensions to some of my countrymen.” Equiano’s main purpose for writing this document was so the audience could feel for the miseries the slave-trade had impacted his people. In the document, Equiano mentioned how black people were not the only ones experiencing the tragic event and there were some white people on the boat as well, “this not only shown towards us blacks but also to some of the whites themselves.” Equiano also showed fear toward the other white men on the boat and once the ship had reached Barbados that they were going to be eaten. I believe that regardless of the race, both white and black people were treated about the same. Although, there were some white people who were treated like royalty and were cruel towards the black people, like Equiano and his people. There were poor white people during this time which resulted in them getting the same treatment as black people. Although they were kind of treated similarly, the poor whites were still categorized as whites so it was not as severe for them as it was for black people. 3. I really enjoyed your post. I agree with you, when I read the document I immediately noticed that it was targetted towards the commoners of Virginia since they were getting unfair treatment by the government and the Governor, William Berkeley. Bacon’s definition of common goods would be the ability to live in healthy and just conditions. His vision on it would have been the removal of the Indians because they were portrayed as enemies. If the Indians were to be removed, they would been able to gain more land. Extra credit: I came across this TED Talk about two years ago and found it incredibly poignant. It was shared all over social media–maybe you have already come across it. The speaker, an author from Nigeria, discusses what she calls the “danger of the single story.” My questions especially come from about 4 minutes in. The entire talk is 18 minutes. Chmamanda Ngozi Adichie TED Talk What is the “single story” and how does it affect our understanding of Africa according to Adichie? In what ways if any does Adiche’s TED talk help deepen your understanding of the Atlantic Slave Trade in the 16th-18th centuries (particularly in terms of what is “Africa” or “African.”) What examples of the “single story” have YOU encountered in your life? In the discussion of the Atlantic slave trade , which we have in this class but also History 11 (Early America), History 2 (Western Civilization II) , History 34 (World History II) I get so agitated when someone says, “but Africans sold their own people,” as if all Africans are one people with a common identity. The continent is larger than North America Europe, China and India combined! Makes me crazy! As always, you can earn up to 5 points extra credit for engaging here as usual.
