Storyboard Text

  • The Africans were taken from their colonies in Africa by the Spaniards and British explorers
  • The british and spanish explorers "kidnapped" them, because they were free labor and got them a huge profit
  • They were sold to plantation owners on markets almost everyday
  • They were treated under very poor conditions, with no or very little freedom
  • The punishments were most often VERY harsh and unfair
  • African American slaves were not seen as equal humans compared to white people, so killing them were no rarity
