    D.C.'s Museum of the Bible tweeted about one of its holdings, a nineteenth-century abridged Bible "for Negro slaves":

    Museum of the Bible on Twitter

    "Artifact of the Day: Parts of the Holy Bible, Selected for the Use of the Negro Slaves (AKA 'Slave Bible') 1808. Though called 'Holy,' it is deeply manipulative. Based on the KJV, it omits all entries that express themes of freedom. #BlackHistoryMonth"

    "The story of Exodus, for example, describing the Israelites' escape from slavery in Egypt, is missing. The editors left out entire books and large portions of others; their selections stressed obedience, submission, and acceptance."
