The slave trade is a word used to describe trafficking in slaves no matter where it occurs in the world. A famous example of a slave trade occurred while America was being colonised by the European nations. Ships from Europe (mainly England) would load with European goods sail to the west coast …of Africa where they would the goods to purchase and load slaves (captured and sold by the Coastal African nations) onto ships (under terrible conditions) and sail them to America to be sold to slave plantations. In return they would purchase sugar, spices, cotton etc and sail these back to Europe to be sold at a profit. The ships went round and round and this was called the slave triangle - it was immensely profitable at all 3 corners of the triangle (and to the sip owners). The trade was brought to an end when the English parliamentarian 'William Wilberforce' got the British parliament to abolish it in 1807. The slaves taken to the United States were not emancipated until 1865. (MORE)
It was profitable for everyone concerned, the Europeans had free labour working their plantations which brought about huge profits and the slave suppliers (rival African tribes and others )sold people (without a cost of production ) to Europeans in exchange for things like Rum and weapons. Everyone …except for the slaves, profited from the triangle. (MORE)
The slave trade in Europe and later the Americas was the capture of Africans and their transport for sale as forced laborers (property). Slavery existed for many centuries among native tribes in Africa, peoples of Asia and the Middle East, and to a lesser extent Native American tribes. The slave t…rade was made illegal in Europe, and later the US, although slavery was legal in the US until the Civil War (1861-1865), and was a major source of unpaid agricultural labor in the US South.

All sorts of items were used in trading slaves such as guns, money, cotton, and a number of other types of goods where traded.
How important was William Wilberforce to the campaign to abolish British participation in the slave trade?
Wilberforce acted as a catalyst in the Anti-Slavery campaign. He was a key member in the London Committee (the committee that focused on gathering evidence and petitions to fight against the slave trade and later on, slavery as a whole) and acted as the political fighter for the cause. Obviously, th…ere were other factors and individuals involved, such as Thomas Clarkson, who travelled practically, all around the world trying to find evidence against the trade and create connections with people and gather signatures for massive petitions to give as evidence in Parliament; Elizabeth Heyrick, who began the women's involvement in mass campaigning for the end of slavery, which in turn influenced the Anti-Slavery Committee Wilberforce and Clarkson were involved in, to change their approach to lobbying for 'Immediate' Abolition rather than 'Gradual' which, had previously, not gotten anywhere. Also, the economic factor cannot be ignored - it has been suggested that the industry would have 'ran out of its own steam' economically too - don't make me going into specifics but basically if there are like a hundred different brands of sugar - the consumer is going to buy the cheapest one, therefore the profits lower etc etc. However, Wilberforce definitely played a part - without his relentless energy and resilience against the constant opposition in parliament, accompanied by his respectability, his media image (look through some poetry, he's always perceived in a positive light) and his unfaltering confidence in the campaign would the Abolition of Slave Trade Act have been passed in 1807? Probably not, it would have been a lot later. (MORE)
The slaves had to do anything they were told and if they actedcontrary to the will of the master/mistress,or if they spoke to themaster or mistress they will be tourtured and beaten or punishedand killed. However,if they tried to escape or stand up to their masters,theywill have been hanged. their b…igtoes were cut off to stop them from escaping or runningaway. (MORE)
The importance of the Atlantic Slave Trade was that it help the colonists in the US. For example, the Africans did hard labor which they were paid less than average payment. Also, it helped the Southern Colony, because the colony runs on plantations.
It was important because it provided sugar for the increasing demand. It made the British empire trade with other countries-whatever the countries wanted for sugar. The reason is mainly money in short terms. People could sell their slaves for high prices.
Congress has the complete and plenary power to tax whatever is taxable and the power to tax is the power to destroy. It is arguable that Congress could have taxed slavery into oblivion and perhaps civil war could have been avoided. Look at the heavy and progressive taxation on cigarettes and how tha…t has encouraged many a smoker to simply quit smoking. Of course, sadly, I am a smoker and find noting simple about quitting smoking, so unfortunately pay these heavy taxes just to sustain an addiction. So, perhaps taxing slavery into oblivion would not have worked. The real point is that Congress couldn't ban slavery in the Constitution until Congress existed and at the time the Constitution was being forged there wasn't yet a Congress, (not under the Federalist system created), to ban slavery. Once congress could ban the slave trade, Congress eventually did with the Thirteenth Amendment. (MORE)
One of the things that made slave trade important in West Africa isthat it earned the slave owners good money. This money could beused to develop farms or invest in other sectors of the economy.
They are taken aboard ships where they are taken to either Africa, America or the west indies. here they are traded for goods
The vast majority of slaves imported in the slave trade went toBrazil and the Spanish Colonies.
it is in with the slave trade because many people worked very hard to make money or get land and some people just dont do any work. So they brought people who did work to do the work for them.
The slave trade was so important because it strengthened the british empire. the country producing sugar traded their sugar with us and we traded whatever they wanted from britian to them. Sugar was in demand and so the slave trade was important to keep on getting that sugar. This was also the case …for crops etc. (MORE)
\nsouthern states best crops were labor intensive and people who owned farms could not do it alone leaving a great need for slaves
If they didn't die on the voyage to the "New World" they were auctioned off to wealthy land owners.
The slave trade brought ruin to West Africa. As traders captured slaves for the Americas, entire villages disappeared. Firearms and alcohol spread across the continent. Tribes turned against other tribes as the once-fabled empires faded into history. . The old African Empires crumbled due to war…ring. . Fighting between Africans destroyed societies. (MORE)
Tribes sold their own members and others sold the people they won a war against in Africa. Most had a long walk to the ships that would transport them to parts of the world where they would be sold. Roughly 3 million slaves were shipped during the late 1600's; a quarter million died on the voyage. O…nce landed, it was mostly luck as to what kind of owner and work expected that each person got. Certainly, it took stamina and strength to endure the trip much less work the plantations in the Americas. (MORE)
Sugar, tobacco and cotton mainly but slaves were also worth a lot of money and there would be auctions to sell slaves to rich plantation owners
it ment black people were used and than they were not hard enough to deal with there proplems. POO

While the Median kingdom controlled the highland region, the Chaldeans, with their capital at Babylon, were masters of the Fertile Crescent. Nebuchadnezzar, becoming king of the Chaldeans in 604 B.C., raised Babylonia to another epoch of brilliance after more than a thousand years of eclipse. By def…eating the Egyptians in Syria, Nebuchadnezzar ended their hopes of re-creating their empire. As we have seen (p. 29), he destroyed Jerusalem in 586 B.C. and carried thousands of Jews captive to Babylonia. Nebuchadnezzar reconstructed Babylon, making it the largest and most impressive city of its day. The tremendous city walls were wide enough at the top to have rows of small houses on either side. In the center of Babylon ran the famous Procession Street, which passed through the Ishtar Gate. This arch, which was adorned with brilliant tile animals, is the best remaining example of Babylonian architecture. The immense palace of Nebuchadnezzar towered terrace upon terrace, each resplendent with masses of ferns, flowers, and trees. These roof gardens, the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon, were so beautiful that they were regarded by the Greeks as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. - Nebuchadnezzar also rebuilt the great temple-tower or ziggurat, the Biblical "Tower of Babel," which the Greek historian Herodotus viewed a century later and described as a tower of solid masonry, a furlong [220 yards] in length and breadth, upon which was raised a second tower, and on that a third, and so on up to eight. The ascent to the top is on the outside, by a path which winds round all the towers. - Nebuchadnezzar was the last great Mesopotamian ruler, and Chaldean power quickly crumbled after his death in 562 B.C. The Chaldean priests - whose interest in astrology so greatly added to the fund of Babylonian astronomical Knowledge that the word "Chaldean" came to mean astronomer - continually undermined the monarchy. Finally, in 539 B.C., they opened the gates of Babylon to Cyrus the Persian, thus fulfilling Daniel's message of doom upon the notorious Belshazzar, the last Chaldean ruler: "You have been weighed in the balances and found wanting" (Dan. 5:27). [Footnote 28: Herodotus History of the Persian Wars 1.181, trans. G. Rawlinson.] (MORE)
The only person that comes to my mind is Frederick Douglass. I think i spelt his name wrong, but he was a slave and then he ran to the north became free and wrote a book about his child hood on slavery as well as fought for the abolition of slavery. _________________________ You may also be tal…king about Olaudah Equiano. He was a slave that wrote a book called The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano. He was bought by a British Naval Officer, Captain Pascal. After 10 years of enslavement he bought his freedom. Just type his name in google and you will find all sorts about him. _________________________ The person who comes immediately to my mind is George Washington Carver, born in the 1860s (before Abolition) in what is now Diamond, Missouri. In the US, the George Washington Carver Recognition Day is celebrated on the anniversary of his death, January 5. His story is truly amazing. His research into farming alternatives to cotton - particularly peanuts and sweet potatoes - as well as his achievements in improving race relations, made him world-famous. His many accomplishments and human qualities are too numerous to detail here; the link below is an excellent place to start, and contains many good references. _________________________ (MORE)
They didn't they just got a life full of hard work and fear from everything. Their descendents benefited, because their descendents now live in one of the most prosperous countries in the world and have lots of opportunities they wouldn't have in Africa. However, the slaves themselves got a raw deal…. (MORE)
Suleiman I, His Imperial Majesty Grand Sultan, Commander of the Faithful and Successor of the Prophet of the Universe (Ottoman Turkish: Ø³ÙÙÙ Ø§Ù SulaymÄn , Modern Turkish: SÃ¼leyman; almost always Kanuni Sultan SÃ¼leyman ; 6 November 1494 - 5/6/7 September 1566) was the ten…th and longest-reigning Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, from 1520 to his death in 1566. He is known inthe West as Suleiman the Magnificent  and in the East, as the Lawmaker (in Turkish Kanuni ;Arabic: Ø§ÙÙØ§ÙÙÙÙâ, alâQÄnÅ«nÄ« ), for his complete reconstruction of the Ottoman legal system. Suleiman became a prominent monarch of 16th century Europe, presiding over the apex of the Ottoman Empire's military, political and economic power. Suleiman personally led Ottoman armies to conquer the Christian strongholds of Belgrade, Rhodes, and most of Hungary before his conquests were checked at the Siege of Vienna in 1529. He annexed most of the Middle East in his conflict with the Persians and large swathes of North Africa as far west as Algeria. Under his rule, the Ottoman fleet dominated the seas from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf.  At the helm of an expanding empire, Suleiman personally instituted legislative changes relating to society, education, taxation, and criminal law. His canonical law (or the Kanuns ) fixed the form of the empire for centuries after his death. Not only was Suleiman a distinguished poet and goldsmithin his own right; he also became a great patron of culture, overseeing the golden age of the Ottoman Empire's artistic, literary and architectural development.  He spoke four languages:Persian, Arabic, Serbian and Chagatay (the oldest version of Turkish language and related toUighur). In a break with Ottoman tradition, Suleiman married a harem girl, Roxelana, who became HÃ¼rrem Sultan; her intrigues as queen in the court and power over the Sultan made her quite renowned. Their son, Selim II, succeeded Suleiman following his death in 1566 after 46 years of rule. (MORE)
Christopher Columbus sailed to America hoping for India. he took things from the native people without trade. he went to Africa and got people to bring back to England
Many of them moved up north however the majority of them stayed in the south and were employed by the very plantation owners that enslaved them.
I think it was because the U.S. used slaves to harvest crops and stuff so the more slaves, the more products for britan. Plus since they were slaves they didnt get paid so Britan didnt have 2 pay xtra 4 teir pay.
The most important reason that the slave trade thrived was economic; the shipping companies and slave dealers made money in obtaining and selling slaves, and the slave owners used slaves as a "free" labor force to earn money for themselves.
the slaves were suffering from the slave trade and was not able to leave any owner from each other but only if they trade each other..
Some were educated but not all; some slave owners let their slaveslearn how to read and write.
Lots of things convinced parliament to bring this act into place, but I think that the most important factor was the two abolitionists, Thomas Clarkson and William Wilberforce. They travelled the country to collect evidence and visual aids to show to parliament and Thomas wrote a prize winning essay… about whether slavery was right or wrong. This evidence was all used in Wilberforce's speech on the 12 th May 1789. Wilberforce was a great influence on parliament as he was a high standing MP and was able to bring up very important points. Then after slavery was abolished in England they started pressurising other countries into abolishing slavery too. (MORE)
It is important to study the slave trade so that future generationscan understand the cruel inhumanity that people in the pastpracticed on each other so that we are not tempted to return tothis type of behavior.
Liverpool, as well as Bristol, were important because they were seaside towns, which meant they had docks. They were the first places the slaves ships would go after selling their slaves in america. When their ships were docked, the crew would clean out the slaves living area. It was the last stop i…n the triangular trade. (MORE)
They suffered from living in their own faeces, and swimming in a years worth of urine, they had bread thrown to them through a hatch, they where forced to row the boats, if they didnt, BANG to the head snm!

A city around the St. Lawrence River would be a possible answer. Sorry I don't know any cities around there. I would say mainly Panama Canal cities or St. Lawrence Seaway, because those water ways are important to trade.
They are swapped for goods.

it is most important if you are quoting someone or something that they wrote, so that when you do, you won't be caught for plagerism.
The vast majority of the slaves in the Atlantic Slave trade that supplied slaves to the Americas were bought by European slave traders from local African tribal leaders. The slaves came from two sources: 1) "Undesirables" that a nation wanted to get rid of. These might be criminals, heretics, the …mentally ill, the indebted and any others that had fallen out of favour with the rulers. 2) The rest came from military conquests by African groups - many for the express purpose of capturing slaves for sale. The chief groups were the Oyo empire (Yoruba), Kong Empire, Kingdom of Benin, Kingdom of Fouta Djallon, Kingdom of Fouta Tooro, Kingdom of Koya, Kingdom of Khasso, Kingdom of Kaabu, Fante Confederacy, Ashanti Confederacy, and the kingdom of Dahomey. Most of the slaves sold into the Atlantic slave trade came from among those defeated in battles. Europeans rarely entered the interior of Africa , due to fear of disease and moreover fierce African resistance. (MORE)
Slaves were never allowed to vote. Male African-Americans or persons of color were given the right to vote in 1870.
usually not many as Britain used slaves just as workers and bought the raw materials e.g cotton to make textiles then they would ship the end product to anywhere in the world e.g a t-shirt and would sell it for a higher price than the raw materials thus making Britain rich
they gave Africans guns, bullets, and other military weapons and tools they gave the Americans the slaves who paid them in goods eg fabric, button's, sugar etc. then they took these goods and sold them to other countries and went back and collected more slaves research the triangle of trade it wil…l tell you all this info and in more detail (MORE)
Why were the writings of ayuba Suleiman diallo are an important source of information on the slave trade?
They are a firsthand account of the slave trade by a slave. Theseare not very common, as many slaves were not taught to read orwrite.

A: For most Christians, the four most important sources of informationon the life of Jesus would be the four New Testament gospels.However, this would not be the case for scholars, who now know thatthree of the gospels were not written independently, but weresubstantially based on the first. The f…our gospels were originally anonymous and were only attributedto Matthew, Mark, Luke and John later in the second century.Scholars have also established that none of them could really havebeen written by an eyewitness to the events portrayed, which meansthat we have no first hand account. The first Gospel to be written was Mark , approximately 70CE, and this was followed over subsequent decades by Matthew,Luke and then John . By placing the Gospels of Mark,Matthew and Luke in parallel and reading them synoptically ('withthe same eye') in the original Greek language, it becomes obviousthat there is a literary dependency among them, with Mark being the original. John's Gospel was, in turn, loosely based on Luke . Matthew and Luke do containdetailed reports on the birth of Jesus, which Raymond E. Brown( An Introduction to the New Testament ) says are "massivelydifferent" and virtually irreconcilable, and which John ShelbySpong ( Born of a Woman: A Bishop Rethinks the Birth ofJesus ) says contain no historical truth. Matthew,Luke and John are derivative and really add nothingto our knowledge of Jesus, so Mark's Gospel is the only gospelaccount that might be an important source of information about thelife of Jesus. The only other canonical material that touches on the life of Jesusare Hebrews and the epistles that Paul wrote. However, thehypothetical 'Q' document, used by the authors of Mathew and Luke as sources of further sayings material attributedto Jesus, should provide some useful information about what Jesussaid. Although no copy of Q has survived to the present time,scholars have been able to reconstruct it. Hebrews speaks of Jesus crucified, but makes no mention ofthe circumstances of the crucifixion. It briefly mentions Jesus ashaving been a high priest, but also says that if he had been onearth he would not have been a high priest. The book otherwisetalks of Jesus as the high priest in heaven. Paul's most significant mentions of Jesus are about the crucifixionand resurrection. In 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, he says that Jesus wasseen by Cephas (Peter), then the twelve, then by more than 500,most of whom were still alive, then by James and all the apostles,and finally by himself. One concern here is mention of the "twelve"- on the gospel accounts, there should have only been eleven atthis stage. It thus appears that for most New Testament scholars the mostimportant sources of information on the life of Jesus are Mark'sGospel, Q, the Epistle to the Hebrews and Paul's Epistles. (MORE)
