Question and answer
explain how equiano ws treated by his captors and owners while he was enslaved in west africa?
This was but one of many names Equiano had been given by slave owners through his life, however, this time Equiano refused and boldly told his new owner that he would prefer to be called Jacob. [ As a punishment, Pascal had him cuffed and told him that he would remain in shackles until he accepted the name chosen for him. In the book about his life, Equiano wrote that the treatment of slaves working inside the slave owners' homes in Virginia was extremely cruel, including several unusual forms of punishments such as an "iron muzzle" used around the mouths of the enslaved to keep house
slaves quiet, leaving them barely able to speak or eat. The narrative conveys the fright and amazement Equiano experienced in his new environment. He thought that the eyes on pictures hanging on the wall followed him wherever he went, and a clock hanging from the chimney would tell his master about anything Equiano would do wrong.
