  • They took me to a port, a long with hundreds of other people, we were being loaded onto a ship, I was surrounded by scared people of all ages and genders, I heard them whispering about legends about whoever goes onto the ships, never come back...
  • Sure why not, she seems to be in good shape
  • Will you be purchasing her today sir?
  • In the ship Men and Women were separated, It was extremely unhygienic and we were starved most days and disease spread fast, women and girl were taken to the top of the ship, were we were forced to dance and abused, we would go hours nonstop, the captain and his crew used us as entertainment, but the truth was we were suffering all along.
  • Keep working or ill whip you !
  • It was months at sea, but when we finally arrived It only got worse, we were sold like cattle and horses, everyone would stare at us as if we were objects, meanwhile they bid for us, I overheard someone call this type of auction a ¨highest bidder¨ auction.
  • Finally I was sold to a white old man, owner of a cotton plantation, before he bought me he examined me to make sure I was at prime health and able to work, but I had no idea what was happening
  • In the plantation, we lived in filth and worked like donkeys, we would sleep on the floor and work from sunrise to sundown, meanwhile other slaves, our own, threatened to whip us and beat us if we stopped working, they were threatened to get killed by the plantation owners if they did not do this, but I was not at all ready for what was bout to come...
