The slaves went to the “white folks” church on Sundays.  They were seated in  the rear of the church.  The white minister would arise and exhort the  slaves to “mind your masters, you owe th em your respect.”  An old Christian  slave who perceived things differently could sometimes be heard to mumble,  “Yeah, wese jest as good as deys is only deys white and we’s black, huh.”   She dare not let the whites hear this.  At times meetin’s were held in the  slaves cabin where some “inspired” slave led services.
