S: The Slave Trade
1: At first the Europeans journeyed to Africa for resources and trade. However, it was later discovered that African rulers would sell their slaves to exchange for other supplies. The African slaves were packed onto big sailing ships where they were transported to the colonies in America and the Caribbean Islands. Once there they would be traded for sugar, cotton, tobacco, and molasses.
2: The African slaves were stowed on shelves and with only a height of 2 ft and 7 in between the beams.
3: Am I not a man and a brother? | "It has been estimated that between thirty and sixty million Africans were subjected to this horrendous triangular trade system and that only one third - if that- of those people survived..." | The slave trade had a lasting effect on some areas of Africa. Encouraging wars and increased tensions among people.
