The first thing to do is give your teacher an English lesson by
titling the essay "Extropian Values as Applied to Slavery"; "in
accordance with" means "in agreement with", which Extropian values
are most definitely not. "In accordance to" is just a mistake.

You'll probably find more information starting from Libertarian
sources and then changing the vocabulary and point of view to be
more Extropian. Objectivist sources like the IOS might have some
good stuff as well.

"I often found myself regretting my own existence, and wishing
myself dead; and but for the hope of being free, I have no doubt
that I should have killed myself, or done something for which I
should have been killed." --Fredrick Douglass

Doesn't sound very Extropian to me.
