On the Fact that (According to Rodriguez's, "The Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery") Only Four Southern States (Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina) Had Anti-Literacy Laws Which Prohibited Slaves from Learning How to Read and Even in Those States the Statutes Were Loosely Obeyed and Routinely Ignored by the Authorities

So we were lied to about that as well (this whole Yankee narrative about slaves leaning how to read late at night by candlelight because they didn't want their owners to know about it; the latter wanting the former to remain ignorant, illiterate, etc.). JUST GREAT.
