9781330295311: Youma: The Story of a West-Indian Slave (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Vouma. the aristocratic white mother who gave him birth; the dark bond-mother who gave him all care, who nursed him, bathed him, taught him to speak the soft and musical speech of slaves, took him out in her arms to show him the beautiful tropic world, told him wonderful folkstories of evenings, lulled him to sleep, attended to his every possible want by day or by night. It was not to be wondered at that during infancy the iia should have been loved more than the white mother: when there was any marked preference it was nearly always in theda sfavor. The child was much more with her than with his real mother: she alone satisfied all his little needs; he found, her more indulgent, more patient, perhaps even more caressing, than the other.

The da was usually a Creole negress, - more often, at all events, of the darker than of the lighter hue, - more commonly a capresse than a mestive; but in her particular case the prejudice of color did not exist. The da was a slave; but no freedwoman, however beautiful or cultivated, could enjoy social privileges equal to those of certain das. The da was respected and loved as a mother: she was at once a foster-mother and nurse. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
