"Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a slave ship, the Madagascar. It has just returned from the Indies where it just delivered 200 men, women, and children to Jamaica. When it left Africa, there were 600 onboard. The rest died of disease or despair. That smell is the smell of death —slow, painful death. Breathe of it. Breathe this deeply. Take those handkerchiefs away from your noses! There! Now, remember that smell. Remember the Madagascar. Remember that God made men equal."
