1: The slave trade had a major affect on Africa. Several million slaves were taken from Africa to the Americas. Slaves were taken from anywhere on the west coast of Africa. From Senegal to Angola, millions Africans became subject to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.

2: The inevitable threat of being enslaved drove countless communities as far away from the salvers' route as possible.

3: As communities traveled away from slavery, they ran into their own troubles. They devoted the time and energy into hiding and protecting themselves. This hindered their technological and economic development.

5: After slaves were captured and brought onto the ships, they were taken below deck for whats known as the Middle Passage. For this journey they were pack tightly to conserve space. The more people they could fit on the ships the more profitable it would be for the merchants. This situation brought many problems for the slaves below deck. Being so close to each other produced a breeding ground for germs and other diseases. Throughout the timely journey of the Middle Passage, many slaves died because of diseases and malnourishment.
