  • In 1619 Africans were taken away from their homes and became slaves approximately 20. They did not have a family and were so very lonely. slaves died during the long trip to North America and for those who made it did not get lucky one bit. At first, slaves had to work for a few years then they were free. But a decades later demand for slaves became high and slaves were slaves for life.WHAT IS SLAVERY Slavery was when the british took people from Africa and force them to do the house work and other stuff for them without getting paie. If the slaves get tired they get severly punished!!

It makes me sad to see my mom and dad work so hard and get punished, I with one day my parents and all of us are free from slavery. I wonder why God let them bring us from Africa!!?
