Storyboard Text

  • In America there was a shortage of slaves because they all kept dying of sickness. So when the Europeans and Americans got to Africa, they sew the perfect slaves and wanted them.
  • The Europeans offered the African kings manufactured goods such as cloth rum and most of all guns, in return for slaves. And the African kings were happy to oblige.
  • The slaves were then tightly packed into ships to be taken to the Americas.
  • The slaves were taken to plantations in the Americas .
  • There they had to work 16 hours a day picking crops under the hot sun. Many died young.
  • This lead to the loss of African culture and language and the depopulation in Africa.
