  • I just don't get it!
  • Get what?
  • Well we learned about the middle passage and.. that's it.
  • You're right. You never learned about the things the slaves brought with them!
  • These future slave owners had no idea that they were bringing home more than just slaves...
  • Luckily, I can help with that. So, the middle passage was the path that the slave boats took to sell them.
  • Foods, like okra, watermelon, and grits were a result of blending African and European cultures!
  • Wow! Really?
  • Many different tribes were held together and this lead to more language patterns! Like Creole and Gullah!
  • Their influence stretched all the to our homes! Like the "shotgun" house, which originated in Haiti!
  • That is amazing!
