3 1. Vocabulary to Know:triangular trade – a three-way trade between the New World, Europe and Africaracism – the belief that one race is superior or inferior to anotherslave codes – strict laws that restricted the rights and activities of slaves to keep slaves from revolting.Middle Passage- brutal voyage between Africa and the new world aboard a slave ship
4 2. How did slavery start in the colonies? Spanish, Dutch and Portuguese settlers were the first to bring enslaved Africans to the Americas.Slavery spread to the colonies, where it became a regular part of trade and provided cheap labor to Southern plantations.Southern economy was dependent on slave labor
5 The British, Dutch, and French entered the slave trade. In time, English colonists— were shipping enslaved Africans across the Atlantic.
6 What was the slave trade? Slave traders set up posts along the African coast.Africans who lived on the coast made raids into the interior, seeking captives to sell to the Europeans.
7 What was the middle passage? Half of the captives died on forced marches to the coast, some of which were as long as 300 miles.Once they arrived at the coasts, captives were traded for guns and other goods.Then they were sent across the Atlantic Ocean on a brutal voyage known as the Middle Passage.
8 To increase their profits, some slave-ship captains crammed the maximum number of captives on board. 15 to 20 percent of enslaved Africans died or committed suicide during the Middle Passage.

15 How did slavery grow?The first enslaved Africans in the colonies may have been treated as servants, and some eventually were freed.But as the need for cheap labor grew, colonies made slavery permanent.Some colonies tried to ban slavery, but it eventually became legal in all the colonies.
16 Why did slavery take root in the colonies? The plantation system led the southern economy to depend on slavery.Planters preferred slaves because while indentured servants were freed after their terms were over, slaves were slaves for life.
17 Not every African in America was a slave, but slavery came to be restricted to people of African descent, and slavery was thus linked to racism.Most English colonists thought they were superior to Africans.
18 There were so many slaves in the colonies that whites began to worry about slave revolts. The first serious slave revolt took place in 1663 in Gloucester, Virginia, and others soon followed.ColonistsEnslaved Africans
19 What were slave codes?Colonial authorities wrote slave codes that said enslaved people could not:meet in large numbers or own weapons.leave a plantation without permission.learn to read and write.Slave codes were written in fear of slave uprisings
