SLAVERY

SLAVERY The American slave trade was an international business. It began in Western Africa, where prisoners were taken for sale to slave traders, ultimately concentrated in the South. Ten to fifteen MILLION Africans were ripped from their families The enslaved were also bred for sale on American soil and transported, often under brutal conditions, throughout the slave states.
