The Slave From Africa Who Created Problems And Fought Against The White Who Bought Him

Just after the conquest of racial oppression on the African landmass, much of African memory was filled with tragic tales.


Slavery's legacy, which began in the civilized countries until Africa was found, has left Africans with many painful experiences of white subjugation


Most Africans suffered greatly during the slave trade era, which lasted from the 16th to the 19th centuries until being banned in 1807, even though people were sold into a foreign place, they were being treated as if they were animals.


During his time, though, there was a tale about a courageous African slave named “Nat Turner” who rebelled against his owners.


After his rebellion assaults he unleashed against the whites masters, Nat Turner unleashed a shocking rebellion against them, which gave the whites too much sadness and suffering.


In 1800 around October, Nat Turner became a slave in Benjamin Turner's household's settlement at Southampton County, in Virginia.


Nat Turner, as shown by legend, was a well-educated man, who had studied the Bible Verses, and gained a great deal of understanding about life from it.


He was often teaching the bible among his co slaves, and advising them to be faithful to their owners, because he knew the Scriptures.


When their lives as slaves progressed, they endured a plethora of heinous events. He began to believe that he had been chosen by God, to rescue others from the slavery jungles.


Nat Turner realized that the Scriptures needed him to bring victimized slaves together, to defeat their masters, to reclaim their liberty.


But when Nat Turner was successful in uniting 75 of his other slaves, he waged day, and night battles alongside his other 75 slaves, against the white people in Southampton, murdering about 60 whites.


After the rebellion, the white troops of about 3,000 fought back violently against the slaves, crucifying several slaves to execution, although not every one of them engaged in the rebellion.


Most of those perpetrators were apprehended, and murdered in the process, with the exception of Nat Turner, and was not captured till after he agreed to surrender.


Before he was prosecuted and condemned to be executed by hanging inside Jerusalem, on the 11th of November, 1831, he expressed no remorse for everything he had done.
