Slave Life - Scenario 2

Taken to other parts of Africa to be used as domestic slaves.

These slaves ended up as part of the household in which they served. They were never maltreated but fortunes depended on:

·how rich the mistress or master was

·religious and traditional beliefs of owner; all religions and traditions forbid the maltreatment of slaves who are considered as fellow human beings

·some traditions have specific male roles which include being leader of the household; therefore all free born male will be entitled to eat first before a slave is given his or her share

All slaves had right to marry free born members of the household or the community.

All slaves had right to own their own property.
