The Slave Trade Was Free Trade: A Tale of Money


acrylic on paper, 2000, 22 x 30 inches

... morality and religion ... both allow that if men can make money by stealing men and women, and working them up into sugar, rice and tobacco, they may innocently continue the practice, and he who condemns it is an unworthy citizen, and a disturber of the church. Money is the measure of morality, and the success or failure of slavery, as a money making system, determines with many whether the thing is virtuous, or villainous, and whether it should be maintained or abolished.
--Frederick Douglass


The Slave Trade Was Free Trade: A Tale of Struggle

acrylic on paper, 2000, 22 x 30 inches

... Let me give you a word of the philosophy of reform. . . . If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.
--Frederick Douglass
