      After achieving immortality – in context of fighting the injustice – what remains the conflict? What can possibly prevent him from freeing the other slaves?

      The plantation owner, the paddy workers. etc

      True, but when you will always outlive whoever you’re up against, it’s kind of hard to lose a battle to death. What stops him from getting into a bomb vest and visit the plantation owner when he can’t be killed?

        As variable suggested.

        He’s immortal.  He’s a SJW with decades to fight slavery, to learn from his mistakes and failures,  to try, try , and try again.  And he can’t instigate one successful slave rebellion before the Civil War?  Not one?

        Not credible even as make-believe, wishful-thinking-history. Not believable given how history actually played out.

        If you want an audience to suspend disbelief and buy into the the premise, then the super-awesome protagonist, needs to fight a super-awesome antagonist, someone with equal power but opposite motives. A  SJW needs  a nemesis, should face seemingly insurmountable and believable obstacles.

        fwiw
