Questions For A Freedom Seeker

In 1860, there were over 300,000 enslaved men, women, and children working and living on Louisiana’s plantations. These people were considered as chattel property-- meaning they could be bought and sold as the owner’s commodities from birth and until death. When presenting the lives of enslaved men, women, and children, the response is usually “ I would have been a runaway slave.” Yet, running away wasn’t as easy as one would think.
