What do you think is it easy e to overcome all those bad things happened? Was it easy for the slaves to free themselves from the slavery? No it wasn’t. The masters were very brutal towards their slaves. They would starve them, beat them, and even the judge or law was all against black people. If unfortunately any slave was caught they were treated even worse than animals. They were even tortured and raped by the owners. Your skin must be crawling. It is obvious because there was no law supporting them and they were suffering daily. The most hard and important part of the the escaping journey was to let slaves free from their owners without them noticing.
