I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT THE SLAVES AT CHRISTMAS TIME. I READ THAT HARRIET TUBMAN HELPED HER BROTHERS ESCAPE AT CHRISTMAS TIME..THEIR SLAVE MASTER WAS PLANNING TO SELL THEM.AFTER CHRISTMAS.SOME SLAVES BELIEVED CHRISTMAS WAS A TIME OF HOPE, TO SOME A CHANCE TO ESCAPE..SOME SLAVE OWNERS ALLOWED THE SLAVES TO PICK OUT A YULE LOG TO BURN .THE HOLIDAY ENDED WHEN THE LOG BURNED OUT...THE HOUSE SLAVES GOT MORE WORK AT CHRISTMAS TIME..... SLAVE MUSICIANS PLAYED INSTRUMENTS,SOME INSTRUMENTS THEY MADE....SOME SLAVES PRACTICED A CHRISTMAS MASQUERADE CALLED JONKONNU.CHRISTMAS TO SLAVES WAS A TIME FOR SPIRITUAL FREEDOM.SLAVES DEVELOPED THEIR OWN STYLE OF RELIGIOUS SONGS, CALLED SPIRITUALS.....SOME SLAVES ATTENDED RELIGIOUS GATHERINGS.CONTROLLED BY THE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS SLAVE OWNERS DENOMINATIONS,BAPTIST AND METHODIST....RELIGION IS A FORM OF WHITE SUPREMACY.BLACK CHURCH CONTROLLED BY THE WHITE RELIGIOUS AND POLITICIANS..............HAS NOT STOPPED....
