Abstract or Description

The discipline of studying, researching, and interpreting history is very important, not only in understanding events of the past, but in explaining or better comprehending present conditions and phenomena, and to predict the future. A careful examination of the experiences of slave children in the U.S. is necessary to give us insight into their development. With this knowledge, we can better understand and foreshadow the experiences of adult slaves and how they struggled and coped with their bondage on a daily basis. Surveying the experiences of slave children is necessary and important in understanding the whole slave experience of African-Americans in the U.S.
