BC: I got my info from the Olaudah Equiano story you gave.
FC: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
1: The trip from Africa was brutal and deadly many of the slave did not survive the trip. The room where they were held was packed full and smelled horrible from men having to go to the bathroom and also getting seasick.
2: They were chained together and sold into slavery.
3: They were also put into pen like sheep so people could go and pick which one they wanted.
4: Buyers would poke and proded at them to make sure that they were getting healthy slaves.
5: Once they were bought they were taken to the properly assigned job and were treated cruelly. THey would get yelled at for talking and even punished.
