  • Can you believe that Americans are fighting for their freedom saying it's imperative while they keep us as slaves?
  • I KNOW RIGHT!!! We're Americans too... we should be freed.
  • I heard that slaves living in the North are being freed.
  • It's kind of like a fake free. They can only leave to fight in the Revolution with the whites.
  • Oh. That sucks.
  • Yeah. And the ones that don't go to the war aren't granted equal rights. They aren't any better off than us, really.
  • No. they're the ones that got some Northern slaves "free". I don't see an end to this for us. Maybe our children will be better off.
  • Well, do you think the Antislavery society is getting anywhere?
  • Mom! I heard from one of my friends that we can leave soon!
  • Not so soon, but it'll come. We just have to be patient.
  • Will we be okay mom?
  • I hope so, son. I really do.
