Words have power.
They express meanings, ideas, and relationships.
They impact how we relate to the past and to one another.
As we share this history, we strive to use words that are
empathetic to those whose history has been marginalized. For
example, we use phrases like enslaved woman, rather than slave.
The noun slave implies she was, at her core, a slave. The adjective
enslaved reveals that though in bondage, bondage was not her
Furthermore, she was enslaved by the actions of another.
Therefore, we use terms like enslaver, rather than master, to
indicate one’s effort to exert power over another. You may hear
other phrases, like slave labor camp or escapee, rather than
plantation or runaway. These reinforce the idea of people's
humanity rather than the conditions forced upon them.
