The Race and Slavery Petitions Project offers data on race and slavery extracted from documents and processed over a period of eighteen years. 

The Woes of The Planter, Pleas for Relief: Slavers Purchased enslaved Black people represented as happy ignorant & meek, instead they were of "Bad Character". They were highly skilled, could read & write and often forged free papers, procured money,  higher themselves out, escaped and stabbed the said petitioners.

This show is produced with the mission to debunk the myth that all white people owned plantations and enslaved people. That slavery was a turnkey operation, a franchise of sorts, Instead it was business run by folks we witness today,  foreign flim flam artists and their agents who failed to keep and support their false get rich quick promises made to the impoverished poor landless white men.  These dabblers of slavery were not warned that the folks they attempted to break the Spirits of  and enslaved were constantly, 24 hours 7 days of week in prayer and seeking freedom.  Chattel slavery was being resisted on every level from countless forces, within their home and abroad with abolitionsts from every end of the earth. The Black people they tried to enslaved embodied the courage and faith like no other, while still in chains they signed and filed their own petitions seeking liberty and dignity.
