This interlude returns to slavery and to the experience of Gabriel Burdett, an enslaved minister in Garrard County, Kentucky. It describes his struggle to preach freely and openly, including his conflict with the white elders of a local church who punished him for not following the dictates of proslavery Christianity. The interlude also discusses Burdett’s preferred form of antislavery Christianity, as well as the importance of religious faith to freedom-seeking people more generally.

Keywords:   slavery, minister, Kentucky, proslavery Christianity, antislavery Christianity, religious faith, church
