Pretend you are an African slave living and working on a
plantation in South Carolina. How did you become a slave? From what
part of Africa did you come? Who captured you and why? How did you
get to the Americas, and what specific kinds of conditions did you
face on that journey? Talk about life on the plantation. What kind
of work do you do? What do you do when all the work is done? Write
a letter to a friend, formatted in at least three paragraphs, in
which you explain your life as a slave by sharing information and
experiences that answer these kinds of questions. Your letter
should have some kind of argument that you support with specific
evidence from the textbook and/or class discussion to talk about
