"The experience of slavery," writes Walter Goodman, "must trouble America's conscience until its effects are eradicated, its injustices somehow redeemed." Drawing heavily on the firsthand accounts of former slaves, Mr. Goodman presents a dramatically clear picture 9f what it meant to be a plantation slave in America in the second quarter of the nineteenth century, to be own4d by another r human being, to be deprived of all control over one's destiny. He describes the slaves' living conditions, the punishments they endured, the pleasures they enjoyed, their efforts at resistance. For black people, the journey from Africa, enchained, led to labor in the fields for generations.
