The “White” Slave Children of New Orleans | 1860s
Isaac and Rosa 1863. Rosa is mixed race ancestry. Both were former slaves. Historic photos of “white” slaves series 1of 5
These cards were sold in 1863-1864 to help raise money to pay for schools for emancipated slaves in New Orleans. The organizers realized that the sympathies that people would have for children who looked white but had been slaves was going to be greater than the sympathy they might have for black-skinned children.
So white folks cared more about the poor lil white passin children than the humanity of Black people who were being tortured beyond respite
