Captain Tuckey reported that ‘a brig under Spanish colours arrived (on the Congo River) . . Her nominal mate, but real captain, and a number of their crew, being English and Irish, tho’ pretended Americans, left no doubt of her being either English or American property’ (African Association 1818).
A Black person in Mississippi could also be sold as a slave unless he was able to prove himself a free man (Davidson 1961: 38f). There was no law that protected the Africans from any cruelty their white masters could conceive: ‘For looking a white man in the eye the enslaved person could have his or her eyes blinded with hot irons. For speaking up in defence of a wife or woman a man could have his right hand severed . . The enslaved person could be roasted over a slow-burning fire, left to die after having both legs and arms broken, oiled and greased and then set afire while hanging from a tree’s limb, or being killed slowly as the slave owner cut the enslaved person’s phallus or breasts’ (Asante 2003: 7f).

A Black person in Mississippi could also be sold as a slave unless he was able to prove himself a free man (Davidson 1961: 38f).
