To teach a slave to read or write was illegal. At that time it was thought that it was going to be "bad" for work in the field or in the big house. So I never taught them. Some, of course, taught themselves by listening carefully to what the overseer and the teacher said, and tried to learn from them. Or to repeat many times. To teach a slave to read or write was illegal in the old, dark days. It was believed that to teach a slave to read or write was to invite and uprising.
