Okinawa_Soba has a lot original images of the descendants of slaves in America, as well as several showing actual slaves who were "freed" during the America's Civil War. To match these images, he also has a box of 19th Century and early 20th Century images of "Black Africa", showing the tribes, roots, and culture that is now a universe away from the modern day existence of "African Americans". Behind the faces of these few images I'm posting here, are lives and experiences that most White people in America will never understand -- either then, or now. [This caption is the same for all.

Even though she was at a young age, this black girl was probably in charge of the welfare of her younger mistresses child as well as the child's playmate.
"I saw two beautiful children playing together. One was a fair whit child; the other was her slave, and also her sister. When I saw them embracing each other, and heard their joyous laughter, I turned sadly away from the sight...I knew how soon her laughter would be changed to sighs."

This photo shows a Native American family with a young African American child. It appears the many Native Americans managed to welcome a lot of African American slaves into their tribes. Even though they may have been viewed as slaves, they were quickly classified as a member of a particular family or group and even marrying with Native Americans leading to their classification as Black Indians.

This was the first Memorial Day. African Americans invented Memorial Day in Charleston, South Carolina. What you have there is black Americans recently freed from slavery announcing to the world with their flowers, their feet, and their songs what the war had been about. What they basically were creating was the Independence Day of a Second American Revolution.” #firstmemorialday

In addition, slaves exerted a profound influence on all aspects of American culture.
The Civil War, Part 2: The People
Nick Biddle escaped from slavery and in 1861, he wore a uniform, traveled with his employee’s company to Baltimore to help protect Washington, D.C., after the surrender of Fort Sumter. Once there, he was set upon by a pro-Confederate mob, attacked with slurs and a brick that hit him in the head so severely it exposed his skull. Some consider him the first man wounded in the Civil War.

A controversial homemade doll known as a“topsy-turvy doll,” The topsy-turvies existed because the slave masters actually didn’t want the slave children to have dolls that looked like themselves, which would give them a sense of empowerment. “When the slave master was gone, the kids would have the black side, but when the slave master was around, they would have the white side."

A "Topsy-Turvy" doll. Types existed through the 1940's. Many theories about how they were used, from slave children not being allowed to play with white dolls and wanting to, to not being allowed to play with black dolls and wanting to ... I think that it simply reflects that white and black children were treated differently, thus anyone with the doll could play with either "type" of baby.
“A controversial homemade doll that’s often found in the South is the “topsy-turvy doll,” The topsy-turvies existed because the slave masters actually didn’t want the slave children to have dolls that looked like themselves, which would give them a sense of empowerment. “When the slave master was gone, the kids would have the black side, but when the slave master was around, they would have the white side. (Interesting. I didn't know that.)
TopsyTurvy Dolls: 'Slave women may have given dolls like these to their daughters as a preparation for a life devoted to nurturing both black and white babies. Designed for children to play with one baby at a time, which accurately reflects the division of caregiving that Black women encountered, having to care for white children during the day and their own children at night. These handmade dolls are important, creative expressions of those otherwise silent women we know only as "mammy.'
