Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Yes. A slave fictional representation is more persuasive as it creates awareness of oppression and at the same time, it arouses sympathy. Take for example pieces by Phillis Wheatley. Her work is based on her personal beliefs and ideas. And her pieces are more than just articles complying with laws and standards.

An example. A white author cannot create a perfect emotion from his readers when explaining hierophantic solar worship. Phillis Wheatley iterates that this are practices that she brought with her from Africa. She creates room for empathy for physically leaving her home behind

By making use of black artiste and actors visual arts makes it compelling to empathize on the injustices of slavery. For example, the movie, Tango starred by Jamie Foxx and 12 years a slave starred by Lupita Nyong'o
