Slavery in America
« on: January 16, 2006, 20:45:51 »
I'm sure most of you had seen this on the other board, but have now made a display for it. Not a nice scene, i know, but like everything else it's part of the past.

Hi Brian,
It is a sad part of American History, and one that the US does not dwell on.
Because of that racial inequalities are still a problem.

As much, as this part of history is shameful, I think your display is very well done.

I agree with Meg, very well done Brian.  Thanks or showing us. 

America isn´t just the US, there was slavery in the Carribean and S. America too.

You've captured a shameful moment in history there.

I belive slavery was common in the Near East too. And the vikings hade slaves, but they were not treated as bad as some of the slaves in USA.

Hello  Brian  :wave:

It is allways hard to find a way to approach a sensitive subject like this but you have clearly thought it out very carefully and your pictures are very thought provoking.

Kindest Regards  Tim  :)

Hi Brian,

 An unusal theme for a custom but it looks ok.

 I think it's important that we don't forget things like that from the past, it would make a good educational piece.
I'm only human, born to make mistakes.

Congrats Momo - you did a great job on this issue (including the nice backdrop). I wonder where you keep all your things? You may have to open a World of history through the eyes of Playmobil museum8-)
Cheers

I'll agree, for a controversial topic/low point in history, this set is very well done.
