I didn't make it to class on wednesday, but I have read chapter 7 and here are some of my thoughts on that. One of the things the stuck out to me right away was how it seems like slavery and Christianity were always connected back in the day, and some people wonder why people don't read the bible anymore! It really makes me put things in perspective when I read a story about someone like this, when all they want is things we take for granted like being able to get a good education. He seems like a pretty smart guy anyways, because of how he got the white kids to teach him, and how he was always figuring out other ways to learn.
