When enslaved African peoples were first brought to the New World, estranged from their homeland, they adapted their native rituals, religions, customs, language, and arts to their new home. In doing so, they held onto their rich heritage while introducing aspects of it into the Americas. From the set Slavery in the Americas, Life Under Slavery explores this intriguing time in American history more thoroughly.

Topics include:
  • Typical living conditions of enslaved Africans
  • The blending of different African ethnic groups
  • Some slaves' resistance to religious conversion and the development of new religions and cultural traditions
  • How Black Codes established codes of conduct and molded slave life
  • New family structures that evolved in response to families broken by slavery
  • Life in different sectors of the slave industry.
