History

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.
