    Slave Trade. Slave Trade. Presentation Transcript

    • Slave trade By: Alexis Barbieri By: Alexis Barbieri
    • Why I chose this topic
      • I chose slave trade as my topic because I didn’t know anything about it and it seemed like an interesting topic to learn about.
    • What is slave trade?
      • An example of Slave trade is the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade. This trade had three stages.
      • In the first stage it involves taking manufacturing goods from Europe to Africa. Such as cloth, spirit, tobacco, beads, cowrie shells, metal goods, and guns.
      • The second stage was shipping the slaves to the Americas.
      • Then Finally the third stage (final stage) which was the return to Europe with the produce from the slave-labor plantations: cotton, sugar, tobacco, molasses and rum.
    • My Essential question.
      • How has slave trade affected history and today?
    • Slave auctions.
      • Once in America slaves were sold by auctions. They were sold to the person that bid the most to them.
      • Here is were most of the families got split up, because the bidder might not want to buy the whole family. They usually bid for the strongest and healthiest member.
    • Things that surprised me
      • Some thing that surprised me was that they branded the slaves with hot irons and shackled them two by two
    • Who freed the slaves
      • Abraham Lincoln the 16 th president of the united states freed the slaves.
    • Why did slave trade start?
      • European empires in the new world lacked one major resource, a work force.
      • Europeans were unsuited from the climate
      • On the other hand Africans were excellent workers.
    • Questions I still have after research..
      • Will the slave trade ever happen again?
      • How old was the youngest slave?
