Many were mostly sent to the plantations such as the sugar plantations this was mainly in Brazil and in the Caribbean’s. Seasoned slaves were preferred because they were already disciplined by their masters. Finally Africans survived the horrible treatment, and the conditions the most brutal of this was the Atlantic slave trade. When we look back at the struggles that the African Americans went through it testifies to humility and humanity as well as the spirit which is the corner stone as well as the middle of the African American
Slave traders had bought and kidnapped slaves from all over Africa, this had led to their being many divisions among them. For instance, contrasting religions, languages, tribes, and skin colour’s and even where they were born played a part in keeping the slaves separate and at bay from their masters. Differing religions and cultures (languages) helped to reduce mass slave revolts. Africans brought to America as slaves had brought their own religious beliefs and practices as well languages. This led to their being numerous different beliefs and cultures (languages) which resulted in a lot of disagreement between slaves.
The idea of European superiority and dominance drove the social structure of the "new world", (consisting mainly of North and Latin Americas and the Caribbean). Because of this dominant racial ideology, the native peoples of both regions were often subjects of discrimination and oppression. The extent of their mistreatment differed, as in North America they were simply pushed aside or confined to a certain area to live, while in the Caribbean and Latin America they were forced into servitude and labor. The dominant racial ideology of Europeans also fueled the slave trade that was prominent in the time period of 1500-1830, which involved shipping African slaves to the the Americas to increase the productivity of the colonies. In both areas, slaves were basically property, bought, sold, and traded to do specific and often labor intensive tasks.
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.
The European slave trade that began in the 1500s was larger. Also, the enslaved Africans were treated far more harshly. In the Americas, when the natives began dying from disease, the Europeans brought in Africans, for three reasons. Africans had resistance to European diseases, so they would not get sick and die. Also, many Africans knew about farming so they would be accustomed to the work involved.
For example, Mexico and Peru who had incorporated slaves as primary agricultural labor force had a less common slavery rate than Portugal/Spain did in Cuba and Portugal in Brazil. Main reasons included the gold and silver mining were abundant around this two empires; also agricultural surplus were massive than tropical export agricultural found in Brazil at the time before African slaves arrived to brazil. In addition, commercial political regulation and troublesome fleet system limited access to European consumers and additional potential profits. Concisely, african slave trade provided labor power that develop plantations around the Equatorial region and Caribbean. In order areas it was a supplement to labor for a declining indigenous population.
The slave trade saw massive amounts of slaves being brought into this area at this time. Slaves that were brought here through the slave trade probably suffered from much despair. Slaves were often split up from their families and sold and then transported to areas that they have never been. Slaves that got moved to Mississippi buy
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.
1518 - First boatload of slaves brought directly from Africa to the Americas Cause: Europeans accustomed to slavery were coming to the Americas. Effects: Slavery helped owners gain wealth and property. The United States grew and slavery eventually became a necessity for the Southern Plantation owners. Driven by humanitarian and economic reasons the country became divided and erupted into Civil War. Significance: Slavery brought Africans to America, challenged this country to look at all men as equals and made us leaders in the world for civil rights of mankind.
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background to the Study In recent times, human trafficking has emerged as a social and global problem confronting many countries of which Ghana is included. This problem has historical similarities with the movement of people as commodities during the colonial slave trade where many Africans were transported to Europe and the Americas to work as forced and cheap labours on their farms, industries and homes. Currently, it has become an issue of concern in the world, because it brings to disrepute the dignity of the human race as underscored by Obi (2008), and the rights of the affected people. Women and children are the two most vulnerable groups often affected by this global phenomenon. Most countries in Africa and Asia are noted as the sending and receiving countries of trafficked persons whilst most European and American countries are identified as the receiving ends of this trade in humans.
