Today, most historians speak of “enslaved” people” instead of about “slaves.” It may seem small – like the difference between “the Muslims” and “Muslim people” – but it is oh so powerful.
By changing from the use of a name – slaves – to an adjective – enslaved – we grant these individuals an identity as people and use a term to describe their position in society rather than reducing them to that position. In a small but important way, we carry them forward as people, not the property that they were in that time. This is not a minor thing, this change of language.
**If you continue to use the word “slave” in your response, please add a brief note of explanation.**
