A House slave was a slave who worked and often lived in the house of the slave-owner. Nannies and nurses, cooks, and washers, gardeners and cleaners, each and every conceivable domestic role was undertaken by slaves. Though perhaps better-off materially, domestic slaves often had uncomfortable relations with their white owners. This digital painting focuses on that painfully important era of American history.
