Hello my name is Chalka. I live in Africa but I am to be traded as a slave.
Today all the other slaves are headed onto the ship. We are to travel the MIDDLE PASSAGE. I do not want to get on. I am a very social person and I am unable to talk to most of the other SLAVES due to a difference in native tongue.
Preparation for auction
We have been on the water for a while now. The conditions in this ship are terrible. I have never had so little space in my entire life. I do not enjoy being part of the choice method of the ECONOMY right now; MERCANTILISM.
We arrived at the COLONIES today. Not nearly as many slaves that boarded the ship are getting off of the ship. The incredibly less than ideal circumstances of the voyage caused for many to die. No one seems to care seeing as we are just pawns in this TRIANGULAR TRADE getting someone the resources they need.
I am going to the slave auction today. I know that I will be sold and that breaks my heart. I wish I could just live here in America instead of being a slave. I unfortunately do no get that option.
I was sold to a man to go work for him. He branded me which hurt a ton. I was one of the slaves that sold for a cheaper price. No one must want me to come work for them. Maybe I seem too weak. I do not know the reason but I do know that this is my life now so I might as well just accept that and do the best job I can.
