The institution of slavery varied widely in the new world and so did African and African American slave responses to it. I want you to make an argument for which colonial society — the Chesapeake Colonies, the Northern Colonies, the Carolinas, the Spanish Empire, or the West Indies — had the most brutal system and which had the least brutal system of slavery and why.
In your essay, please compare and contrast the institution of slavery in the two colonial societies you selected and include slave responses to the institution of slavery. Be certain to include at least one example of active resistance and one example of passive resistance taken from the primary source readings, author lectures, and documentaries we viewed.
