In the second quarter of the eighteenth century, (former) white servants were becoming small landowners and they also joined the movement to gain more rights. Some politicians (Jefferson) addressed issues related to slavery or rather slave trade and condemned it.

However, these voices were not heard in the south and the British did not pay attention to them.
The authors note that “[d]rawing from the political ideology of the American revolutionary crisis” African Americans started their own fight for their basic rights (Franklin and Higginbotham 2010, 92). The fight was held in different ways: writing pamphlets, participating in demonstrations, escaping from their owners and so on.

Such personalities as Crispus Attucks and Phillis Wheatley (who had a really remarkable life as she was born a slave and became a renowned poet and fighter for her people’s rights) became symbols of the fight and sufferings of slaves.
The authors also note that the Blacks had participated in the movement for American independence since the 17th century and they fought against British troops in the 18th century as well (Franklin and Higginbotham 2010). Notably, Americans did not want to enlist Blacks (free and slaves) to fight against the British and even changed the policy (they enlisted only Whites).
However, the British policy, known as Dunmore Proclamation, ensured that slaves who fought for the British would obtain freedom. Americans had to respond and Individual State Policies ensured enlistment of both free blacks and slaves, but these fighters were integrated in the troops as only a few units of blacks existed. At the same time, many Haitian black slaves fought for France.
