Their Ride 600 to 650 thousand slaves arrived in America against their will. An African cost $27.00. Slaves that were ill were sometimes thrown over board. They were all split up
Losses Many families were split up. They rarely were able to see their family if their masters let them. They were forced away from their homes. Most of them weren’t aloud to get married.
Beatings When the slaves did something wrong they got beatings to learn their lesson. Some of them like in this picture didn’t learn their lesson so they got beatings so many times you could see it on their backs. They were branded, whipped, and chained.
Separation A lot of the families got split up either into groups or all alone. They separated the babies from the moms when they were a few weeks old so they wouldn’t have any emotions towards the parents.
Field Slaves They were called “ Field Hands” They usually worked from 6:00 A.M. to midnight. They picked the cotton while the children fed the chickens, kept the crows away and, much more.
House Slaves House slaves were usually treated much better than field slaves. They cooked, cleaned, and did anything their owner asked them to do. They lived at their owners house. Any time at night their master wanted something then they would have to do it.
Underground Railroads It was a place for the slaves to stop on the way for freedom. The south lost 100,oo0 slaves between 1810 and 1850. Harriet Tubman made 19 trips into the south and escorted 300 slaves to their freedom.
End of Slavery In 1926 at the slavery convention it was a turning point in banning global slavery. Then in 1966 they adopted the International convenant and political rights. Everyone was finally free now.
