FC: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade

1: The forcible taking of millions of people from Africa between 1500 and 1900 had a major effect on the population growth, which led to the economic underdevelopment of Africa.

2: The middle passage was the route that was taken to transport slaves from Africa to America and the Caribbeans.

3: Some of the African people were shackled under deck and when they would try to end their lives by not eating they would be whipped to encourage them to eat.

4: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade affected the equality of power between Africa and European powers and this imbalance still exists today. | Africa became poorer due to the loss of people and goods and European countries became wealthier.

5: This situation occurred over time and was the result of the capture of Africans. It was accepted because Africans were viewed as less human when compared to Europeans.
