Life for the Enslaved Afrficans was hard. They were taken away from their family and homes in Africa. They were forced to work in the feild for as long as they live. They made… tobacco as a cash crop for the farmers so the can buy goods or services the farmers would like. Glad to answer your question :) by: Tre'veon
Slaves endured germs and disease. There were no bathrooms so the Africans had to go on the ship which sometimes got others sick. I f there was no enough food on the ship some …of slaves were thrown off the ship.
Well, in terms of family, they had their children often ripped away to be sold, or killed if they were scrawny. The men could expect their wives to be forced to be sex slaves …and breeders, and they themselves would be too busy with working to death to hold on to any semplance of religion.
Their family was the only people they could trust and the only people who understood what they were going through. Religion gave them hope.
It hurts the African Americans.
