how did slaves Resist Against Slavery?
Slaves resisted against slavery by refusing to obey owners, refusing to work, worked slowly, broke farm tools, learned to read and write, escaped the North using the Underground Railroad, and they would rebel against their owners in groups.
The slaves code was established in 1661. It was to provide legal basis for slavery in Barbados. The code's preamble was "to protect slaves other Goods and Chattels." The code was to protect slaves against cruel things. It provided more protection for the slave masters. The slave owners were required to give the slaves one set of clothing per year.
The owners made blacks and their children property. In some colonies it was illegal to teach slaves to read and write. Conversation to Christianity did not qualify the slave freedom. The "black codes" or "slave codes" would appear during and after the Civil War area.
