1: Slavery was basically abducting someone and making them do work for you, do your bidding, whatever you wanna call it. in some places it was different. in Africa slaves were taken from war, receiving punishment for evil crimes or adultery things like that; but all together they were treated fairly well, like part of the family. The Slaves were given fair work, nothing too unreasonable. | Types of Slavery | Not so in America. Slaves in America were treat way worse, terribly; they had to work all day and only got to sleep because they needed the energy, they're food was served indiscreetly. and they weren't taken fairly either of course. they had to work plantations in the hot sun all day, some times if they were picking cotton, they would put a couple rocks in the sack to make it heavier. They were beaten if they they didn't act obsequiously.

2: slavery was going fine in Africa until it became big business; then Europeans started coming for slaves and could easily take them because they're weapons were more powerful than African spears and shield. when the slave demand became bigger the European slave demand became bigger too, and Africa there fore made up new crimes so they could get slaves easier but still technically fairly. Africa soon became a continent of violence and misery. | The disorganization of Africa due to the demand of slaves from the Europeans.

3: Part of the reason why slaves were taken to do the work in the prominent sun is because of the melanin in our bodies making so we are partially resistant to the sun burn. | Slaves were taken far away from their homes to foreign lands to work until they died. from men to women to children. they often times tried to run away, if they were caught the punishment was severe
