  3. This photograph is of a slave who was severely beaten by an overseer. He is sitting with his bare back facing the camera showing a large number of deep scars running the length of his back. His face is not visible. The picture shows the brutality and inhumanity of slavery and contradicts the plantation owners’ claims of paternalism and “cradle to grave” care. Slaves were beaten for all kinds of offenses including working too slowly. Escaped slaves who were caught were beaten the worst and often mutilated.
