Brookes slave ship My name is Richard Brooks captian of my dear “Brookes”. It was my duty to successfully make the passage from Once the slaves were taken to the ship, the were shackled in pairs and packed into the small amount of room available on the ship. Although the conditions were extremely harsh, the captains of slave ships tried to deliver as many healthy slaves for as little cost as possible. Some captains used a system called loose packing to deliver slaves. Under that system, captains transported fewer slaves than their ships could carry in the hope of reducing sickness and death among them.
Jesus R. Silva Government 1301 P.15 Professor Clark Human Traffacking From the 17th century until the 19th century, almost twelve million Africans were brought to the New World against their will to perform back-breaking labor under terrible conditions. The British slave trade was eventually abolished in 1807 (although illegal slave trading would continue for decades after that) after years of debate, in which supporters of the trade claimed that it was not inhumane, that they were acting in the slaves’ benefit, etc. The rationalizations and defenses given for slavery and the slave trade were absurd and self-serving. Slavery was a truly barbaric, and those who think that they can control what another group of people eat, where they sleep,
Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade The Atlantic slave trade began in the early sixteenth century and extended all the way to the late nineteenth century. It involved the transportation of millions of Africans to the Americas. These Africans were forced to leave their countries in order to become the slaves of the newly found American colonies. Just the journey across the seas to the America’s was highly inhumane cramming hundreds of people onto small boats. The reason that the African slaves were needed was because they were strong and good workers.
All these lands were worked by slaves because of CHEAP labor. This hit parts of Africa dramatically, lowering Africa’s population by 10 to 12 million people and also lowering its standard of living. (DFA, 58) I think a powerful sentence in (DFA 59) is “Blackness was becoming a mark of inferiority”. I depict that as Africans/ African Americans were becoming scum of the Earth. They basically had no status whatsoever when it came to a place in this world.
During the Slave Trade, many slaves came from different slave ports: Eastern Africa, Guinea Coast, Southern Africa, Western Sudan, and Central Sudan. The Middle Passage was used to describe slave trade from Africa to America. Approximately 10 million slaves came to America between 1603 and 1863. Some people also call it the Triangular Trade, because the ships traveled on ways that formed a shape of a triangle. The trips from these different countries to America were tremendously awful.
The ethnic group in which I belong to are African Americans. African Americans immigrated into the United States in 1619. Majority of the African Americans were forced to come to North America. African Americans were so abused that the nation was almost torn apart. African Americans were introduced to the United States through slavery.
This event occurred on December 29, 1890.The U.S Cavalry had gathered local Native Americans, shot and killed innocent Native American men, women, and children. The shots were fired because of misunderstanding of culture and ignorance. Another fact that stood out was the truth about Christopher Columbus. The Columbus that was introduced to us in grade school, is so different than the one he really was. Mr. Columbus killed and raped Native Americans because in his eye they were less than humans.
Millions of Africans were shipped by force o America. The slave trade had many disastrous results in Africa societies. The slave trade became an important aspect of a dynamic and complex situation in Africa during the period from the 15th to 17th centuries. Slaves had been treated the same in the Ottoman Empire and Africa. Slaves in Africa and the Ottoman Empire were a part of society and had a chance to promote.
Slaves constructed more than 9,500 miles of railroad track by 1860, a third of the nation's total and more than the mileage of Britain, France, and Germany. (digitalhistory.uh.edu) The nature of the black man was not only misunderstood, but used to keep him in bondage. During it’s span, American slavery did have some resistance. Slaves engaged in at least 250 shipboard rebellions. Whether in the form of revolts within their own land borders or on a larger scale with rebellions, one of the most notable being that of Nat Turner.
