BC: The End
FC: Slave Trade Project
1: Olaudah Equiano was eleven when he and his sister were kidnapped from their village by black men.
2: The kidnappers brought them to a bigger African town where he was sold into slavery then he was sold again to another trader. "Olaudah was marched many miles and saw the landscape change. He was soon shocked to see that the land had changed to the colour of the sky and appeared to be moving up and down. Olaudah was very frightened and had to be dragged nearer to the sea. He then noticed a very big 'house' on the moving land. The people around the big 'house' looked very strange. They had long hair, white skin and spoke a strange language. Olaudah thought that they were devils. "
3: All the slaves were forced below deck The hold was overcrowded, each man only had about eighteen inches space in which to sit. People were sweating, vomiting, urinating and defecating from fear and the movement of the ship everywhere.
