After a week had gone by no one seemed to mention the slaves that were last seen leaving with the white woman. To the slave quarters everyone went to end the work day.
“So if the slaves worked hard they didn’t have to worry about getting whipped?,” asked Zoe.
“Not necessarily, overseers sometimes found reasons to whip the slaves.”
“Zoe how was school?”
“What did you learn today?”
“Since its black history month we talked about Martin Luther King in History class.”
“Well what did you learn about him?”
“We learned that he was a civil rights leader.”
