FC: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
1: Olaudah Equiano wrote about the horrors of of being a slave at that time. He and his sister were so frightened on the cargo ship they couldn't eat. Many on the ship felt the same way. They had no idea of what was coming, and that frightened them. Sadly, I think they would have prefered the mystery.
2: People of all age groups were taken as slaves. Even the youngest, like Equiano. The slaves were treated different in different regions. Mostly, however, the slaves were treated poorly.
3: The trans-atlantic slave trade lasted a long time, so many spent their whole lives in slavery. However, there was one way out of slavery. Slaves could purchase their freedom by buying it. Equiano saved enough money to do this.
4: The trans-atlantic slave trade was one the worst events in history. So many Africans died before the ships came to America, and many died in poor working conditions.
5: The images came from about.com African history. The information came from the textbook, and the pdf about Equiano.

22: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
