The Many Faces of Slavery

The exploitation of enslaved people differed throughout the Americas. However, the bottom line was profit for the owner, while for the slave it was loss of freedom.

Slaves were possessions. They were viewed as a valuable commodity to be bought and sold and forced to work. Their owners determined what they did and how they were treated for their lifetimes.

...we are therefore to look for labour to that intrinsically valuable cast of People called Negro Slaves whose productive labour & cheerful obediance has in all cases been has in all cases been measured by the Justice & good treatment of their master...
Zephaniah Kingsley, 1826

A slave...is the property of another, politically and socially...at a lower level than the mass of the people, and performs compulsory labor.
H.J. Niebor, 1910
