African americans during the civil war faced terrible hardships, and most were the separation of their families.  Lewis Clarke was separated from himself form his family in 1841 so that he would not be sold away from his family.  Although he got away safely, he still was without all of his family, in some cases of families being separated, the mothers would kill their children to avoid being separated. Although the slaves provided good work to the white people, they lived hard lives filled with sadness.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's curator insight, August 16, 2013 4:42 PM

In late August, 1791, an uprising began in Santo Domingo (today Haiti and the Dominican Republic) that would have a major effect on abolishing the transatlantic slave trade. The slave rebellion in the area weakened the Caribbean colonial system, sparking an uprising that led to abolishing slavery and giving the island its independence. It marked the beginning of the destruction of the slavery system, the slave trade and colonialism.

International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition was first celebrated in many countries, in particular in Haiti, on August 23, 1998, and in Senegal on August 23, 1999. Each year the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reminds the international community about the importance of commemorating this day. This date also pays tribute to those who worked hard to abolish slave trade and slavery throughout the world. This commitment and the actions used to fight against the system of slavery had an impact on the human rights movement.
