"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, cannot long retain it." - Roy P. Basler There is multiple reasons why slavery was necessary. There is still so much still in question from the start of slavery until now. Slavery shaped the United States for everything we have today.
There are multiple reasons why slavery caused a lot of problems between the whites and the blacks. “We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people”. -Luther King, Jr Most African Americans were enslaved “95 percent of the African Americans in the United States was slaves.” (Problems of Slavery – Murphy).

She helped the United States learn more about Slavery so they could help abolish it. She is one of the more famous figures from this time period that really helped get the United States up and going.
