A Slave Family helps bring to life the many struggles slaves faced during the colonial period, while also celebrating the strength found in family ties. Children will learn: what slavery is and how it became a part of life in the colonies; what daily life was like and how they maintained their cultural traditions from Africa; what it was like to be a child slave and whether they received any education; what kind of work was performed by field hands, house servants, and tradespeople; the difficulty of keeping the family together since slaves were often sold; and what happened to slaves when they were freed.
