Synopsis

Journeying to a New Land The Slave Trade by Matthew Kachur

The transatlantic slave trade forcibly brought thousands of Africans to the Americas. In doing so, it impacted peoples and cultures across the globe. The legacy of the slave trade has had lasting effects on the American culture for generations. From the new set Slavery in the Americas , The Slave Trade explores this intriguing time in American history more thoroughly. Topics include: slavery's beginnings in North America; the need for sugar plantations to have slave labor; the Middle Passage; the American slave trade; abolishing the slave trade; illegal continuation of the slave trade; and the end of the slave trade.
