Migration Time Travel
Hey man, I've always been confused about African American migration, can you explain?
Let's time travel instead, I'll show you!!!
In the 18th century, the British shipped many Africans to the 13 colonies as part of the triangular slave trade
Why would the British need Africans in the 13 colonies???
The British captured Africans to be their slaves, abusing them and making them do their physical labor
WHAT?! That's terrible. African people back then did not deserve that. So unfair!
After slaves were freed, most African Americans stayed in the south during the late 18th century. They worked as sharecroppers.
Whew, good thing slaves were freed, but not all African Americans are in the south nowadays, I'm confused.
In two waves of 1910-1920 and 1940-1950, they migrated north and west. Then during the 50's and 60's, they moved from ghettos into adjacent neighborhoods.
Ohhh that makes sense, and that pretty much leads up to today
'Til Next Time On The Time Machine!
Wow, I learned so much about the migration of African Americans
