On "The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass" (chapter 1) :
Quote the law about children of slave women. What is the result of the law? How does it contradict the argument that God cursed Ham, therefore, slavery is justified?
I know the story of Noah and Ham, but I'm not entirely sure where the law is in the story. I believe it's this:
"Frequently, before the child has reached its twelfth month, its mother is taken from it, and hired out on some farm a considerable distance off, and the child is placed under the care of an old woman, too old for field labor."
...I'm not really sure though. Help please? Thanks!
