FC: Trans- Atlantic Slave Trade | By Rebecca Sheaffer 109961 Ms. Crow
1: Most people did not care about the people they were selling and putting through torture. They just wanted the money and really could care less about them. And this "book" will tell you what it was like for them.
3: The adults worked in the fields during the day leaving the children to fend for themselves in the village. The capture always seemed to take place when they least expected it and they were not treated nicely at all. Many were in cramped quaters on boats or had to walk long distances without shoes and other proper things. On the boat they had the worst conditions in which many people became ill and died. The stale air from vomit, sewage, and even death was not fit for any human being.
5: When they were sold their new owner nice or nasty could use them for whatever purpose. Many families were permanately seperated. Many were mistreated even if they were strong workers the owners just didn't like them. They had unfair working hours and didn't even get paid. Some didn't even get the proper nutrition needed.
6: Many sought to be free and some we able to earn freedom by buying it from the owners. Some owners treated their slaves almost like family and treated kindly. There were many different views of slavery. And people always have their own opinion but I hope this was able to help you with your understanding of it.
8: Ultimately this affected Africa in many ways. Because from the villages they only took the strong, healthy ones. Leaving the weak and ill to do all the work and take care of the village. Those villages would fail and so then once that happened to a lot of the villages Africa started to lose its economy.
