I ask that because what Nat Turner did was every bit as significant. Before the revolt led by Turner, There was a debate amongst white scholars that slavery should not end because black people were happy and content with it. That they were fed and cared for so if slavery ended they would be lost and miserable. The revolt changed many of their opinions about owning people. It proved that black people were not indeed happy, that they would do anything to escape it. Including killing the plantation owner and his whole family. It made many of them so afraid to own people, that they even freed theirs. So why is Nat Turners' name so deeply buried in not only white peoples' history, but ours as well?
