Quote:
"This is shown by the fact that in every state of the American Union, where slavery exists, except the State of Kentucky, there are laws absolutely prohibitory of education among the slaves. The crime of teaching a slave to read is punishable with severe fines and imprisonment, and, in some instances, with death itself."
