How was life different for plantation slaves city slaves and free blacks in the south?

Plantation slaves in the South were generally agricultural workers, and few owners had more than two dozen slaves. On a typical plantation, some slaves would be involved in domestic chores. This often gave them better quarters and better treatment, but exposed them to close scrutiny and often abuse. Overseers would enforce work and discipline by cruel and violent means. City slaves, either domestics or tradesmen, participated in the economies of the urban areas, and represented up to a fifth of the population in some large Antebellum cities. They were generally better treated and housed, and many were given training as artisans or tradesmen. Free blacks, while nominally citizens of their respective localities, were commonly treated with disrespect and scorn under the Black Codes of the slave South. Some free blacks also owned slaves themselves, and were in any case too few to impact the treatment of fellow blacks under the system of human bondage. Anyone, black or white, who helped slaves avoid recapture or punishment faced severe criminal penalties or death. Freed blacks, who included many mixed-race children of plantation owners, were as a group better educated than any slaves.
