Slaves were black smith carpenters, wet nurses, nannies bartenders, masons, seamstresses ladies in waiting, bakers, butlers, housekeepers,they played instruments, they reared livestock. And some became overseers and looked over the accounts of the plantations too.
Shoot the women in the market come from a line of women who have always sold in the market on the weekends when backra masters allowed the slaves to sell their crops in the market on the weekend. I should tell them to get up of their lazy asses and find work? I effin salute them. They and the male farmers work their land, load up on a country bus and go into the town to sell to feed the entire nation for generations.
