FC: Slave Trade Project by Mikayla Livingston
1: This project is about the Atlantic African Slave Trade. It will also talk about how the slave trade affected the continent of Africa.
2: What was the Slave Trade?
3: The slave trade was a trade of African slaves for goods across the Atlantic. There was about 10 to 15 million Africans sent to the Americas from 1500s to the 1800s. | An incredible statistic is that in the 1700s there were up to 60,000 Africans were put onto these slave ships a year. On these slave ships there were Africans that did not even survive the voyage to America because of the terrible conditions on the ship. Some of these bad conditions included extremely cramped space, terrible smells, and there was disease. The Atlantic slave trade lasted about 400 years and during that time some believe that it caused the death of close to 2 or 3 million Africans.
4: How did the Slave Trade End? In Britain the law was passed in 1833 that banned slavery. Slavery went on in the U.S. till 1865.
5: Lasting Effects on Africa | For the 400 years the slave trade went on for definitely had lasting effects on Africa. In some parts of Africa this had little effects or none at all. In other parts of Africa though, it had dramatic effects. In the areas it did effect it disrupted whole societies, increased wars, and created tensions among neighboring places. The slave trade scattered millions of Africans everywhere. The Africans that did survive this unreal nightmare struggled with holding onto their own original culture because of being moved somewhere other than their homeland. Some Africans after gaining freedom that tried to go back to their homeland sometimes went back to discover it was completely different or nonexistent.
