Do you know what a planting class is? Like i assume it associates with farming but i want to make sure before giving you a definite answer!

There weren't just farming slaves, many people used them for different purposes too. Some were used as nanny's, or house keepers. Some women worked in brothels as well. Life as a slave was terrible. They had terrible conditions to live in, small cottages on the farmland, little food to plant for themselves and usually they were apprehended for anything. They populated pretty quickly and it wasn't a good thing. Many families were auctioned off and separated. It was rare that a family stayed together. There were a few brave slaves, such as Harriet Tubman who stood up for herself and others. She's a good example of a resistance, she led many people to freedom using underground tunnels, and roadways.

Well, farming slaves usually had it way harder than others, they were forced to work grueling hours and horrendous beatings. They got no breaks usually and no exceptions. Other kinds of slaves such as house keepers were usually well-taken care of, because they were around the family a lot and they usually wanted a representable appearance for other people.

And, I assume what you mean by family dynamics in slave culture, how the slave families lived together during that time?

But families in slavery; Many slaves who had families were broken up. Slave owners usually took kids and sold them off in auctions, or separated the families. If a family happened to stay together, though, they would usually live together in a really small living space. Many slaves gathered together at night and played music to get through the nights together. Many slaves got their religions from their slave owners, but prayer brought all of them together.

But family life was extremely hard because, you'd want to stick up for your child and what not, but most of the time the slaves would get beaten if they even spoke a single word to a guard. Essentially, the slaves formed their own little living community and helped each other out whenever they could.

is there any other ways slaves resisted owners?
beatboxingfetus
  • beatboxingfetus
Yep, like I said before, slaves worked together as a community. So they sabotaged the owners as much as possible. Whether it be destroying important machinery or ruining crops, some stole food for themselves. Some pretended to be sick or work really slowly. Slaves tried to flee, but most of them were caught due to hounds sniffing them out. Sometimes the whole community of slaves rebelled against their owners. Cato’s Conspiracy, originated in Stono, South Carolina, in 1739. England at this time was at war with Spain, and a group of about eighty slaves took up arms and attempted to march to Spanish Florida, where they expected to find refuge. A battle ensued when they were overtaken by armed whites. Some forty-four blacks and twenty-one whites were killed. ( http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/slavery-iv-slave-rebellions)
