In 1518, the first African slaves arrived in the Americas. They came to Hispania from Guinea in West Africa. What began as simply trade in gold, ivory, pepper, and only a few human beings, became a huge trade in human cargo in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries
Slavery In Africa slaves could be bought for £5 and sold in the west Indies for £20. Slaves were also shipped over the Atlantic
Slaves can be bought and sold, and are denied all rights, even to have a say about what happens to their children. Some slaves were not happy!!! At the choices they had. They were like puppets on string being controlled by somebody else.
The abolition of slave trade is about stopping cruelty
Artists drew cartoons to prove that slavery is bad. This is an example of a cartoon.
