The Transatlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course Black American History #1

Today we’re learning about the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which brought millions of captive Africans to the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries, with the largest number of people trafficked between 1700 and 1808.

We’ll look at the ships and crews that brought enslaved people across the ocean via what was known as the Middle Passage and explore the horrific conditions that these captives endured.  

Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished European History, we will be watching Crash Course’s Black American History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday.

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X, O.A.A.U.’s [Organization of Afro-American Unity] founding forum at the Audubon Ballroom (1964)
