Therefore, Hegel coined the term “non-historical peoples” for the Black Africans. Slaves from Brazil and Angola were brought to the Hudson Valley by the Dutch settlers. The Dutch needed the slaves to work in their farms. Slavery sustained in different parts of the world including New York, New Netherland and the British colony for the next two hundred years. Slaves were maximal in number in New York than in any northern state by the time the 18th century ended. That was a time of revolution and the African Americans were striving for their rights. Consequentially, the law declared freedom for any child born to the slaves after 4 July 1800. Things started to change for the better after the second half of the 18th century when African American protagonists started to frequently make use of the religious texts and refer to the religious anecdotes in order to fight for the rights of African Americans. It all primarily started in 1789 when the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano was published. Equiano actively participated in the movement of the slave trade abolishment. Amongst his numerous efforts to abolish the slave trade was a robust abolitionist autobiography that he wrote in 1789. The end of American slavery and the emancipation of African Americans in the northern and the southern communities is fundamentally an outcome of such leaders that used religion as the basis of their claims and arguments.
