Slaves actively resisted bondage by purposefully slowing down their work pace, faking illness, or even mutilating themselves in order to lessen their value as human property.

Resisting the inhumanity of their enslaved condition, slaves struggled to maintain a family life. Some African cultural traditions included using song and code to relay hidden messages. This tradition was sometimes used by slaves in their efforts to secretly pass on information in planning escapes.

What would you do to resist slavery?
Some slaves concealed their thoughts and feelings from their owner. Slaves prepared for freedom by learning to write and acquired as many skills as possible. Few managed to organize revolts or escape bondage.
