This storyboard does not have a description.
Africans captured people from different tribes to be sold. Slave traders depended on this Africans to capture people for them. The traders paid for the slaves with European guns, bullets, alcohol and other products.
The captured Africans were forced to march long distances to the African coast. They marched with iron around their necks and chains around their hands and legs. Many Africans died during the long march to the coast.
When they reached the coast of Africa they were held in prisons. They stayed there until they were forced to board ships that would take them on the long trip to America.
