“De white folks sho’ didn’t ‘low us niggers to see a newspaper or nothin we   might learn to read an ‘rite from.”

  “We went to de white folks church to worship an’ sometimes us niggers would   hold meetings of our own at our quarters. White folks read ‘de Bible to us at   Massa Conner’s on Sunday mornin’.”

  “One slave we called Alex Woodward ran away lots o’ times an’ de white folks   would have to catch him with bull dogs. Dey always used de “Bull Whip” on him   when dey caught him.”
