Anti Slavery Abolished

Satisfactory Essays
French planters captured and domesticated Africans for the maintenance of their sugar and coffee plantations. Slaves were brutally whipped, starved to death, and over-worked. Compensation for their work and produce was not given to slaves. Pro-slavery advocates referred to the slaves as “hard-working citizens” and believed that they were essential in order for the colonies to prosper economically. Anti-slavery advocates depicted the working and living conditions in which the slaves endured from their owners. Certain alienable rights were taken away from the slaves too. Slavery was contrary to natural law, exploiting, degrading, and inhumane; therefore, it should be abolished.
