slavery story board Equiano
Let's break in and steal all we can!
Olaudah Equiano lived witha wealthy family
One day Olaudah was left alone with his sister at home, and some people broke in and took them as slaves.
He lived as a slave for a wealthy widow until he was taken to a ship heading to America.. "I was immediately handled and tossed up to see if I were sound by some of the crew; and I was now persuaded that I had gotten into a world of bad spirits, and that they were going to kill me."
"I now wished for the last friend, death, to relieve me; but soon, to my grief, two of the white men offered me [food]; and, on my refusing to eat, one of them held me fast by the hands… while the other flogged me severely.”
His ship arrived at America,but one one bought him, so he was transported to a plantation in Virginia,with a British Lieutenant.Their complexions too differing so much from ours, their long hair, and the language they spoke, (which was very different from any I had ever heard) united to confirm me in this belief.
