Sernett Chapter Fourteen

When reading the Sernett chapters, I enjoyed chapter fourteen. The reason for this is because Richard Allen had a kind master. His master was very understanding and did not mind that his slaves were learning about religion. Even though the master was not religious like his slaves were he did participate in activities that they were a part of. For example Allen writes, “When our master found we were making no provision to go to the meeting, he would frequently ask us if it was not our meeting day, and if were not going” (page 141). In this passage it shows that the master is concerned on whether his slaves enjoy going to their classes or not. I really enjoyed the master and how he was able to connect with his slaves. The book even discussed how the master knew going to these classes was a good thing. These classes would not make them revolt. I really enjoyed this reading and what the story was behind it.
