Narratives of the Enslaved

This section of the exhibit includes the narratives of the enslaved. Due to the nature of slavery, it was forbidden for the enslaved to become literate. This means that the point-of-view of the enslaved is difficult to experience in their own words. There are a few of these narratives from the United States; unfortunately, due to the limitations of research and a cornucopia of factors, there are currently no narratives of the enslaved available from Morocco. For your consideration, are a few of these narratives.
