How did African-Americans arrive in America?

The initial Africans first set foot in the continent of America during or round about the age of the Egyptian Dynasties (btw 3100-2100 BC). According to recent study, it was deduced that they embarked on commerce voyages to and fro the continent supplying the channels with salt and precious metals. It is suggested that there was a great connection with the "Olmec" civilisation of Mexico.




The most recent migration was forced upon them during the hollocausts of the 16-18th Century which became known as the slave trade. African people were sold into slavery and transported by way of force into American South in 1619, by the European traders. Hundreds were cramped into the large ships, and endured hideous conditions.

How They Got Here

The Spanish began slave trading in the West Indies in the 1600's. Then a British Company got into it and bought, kidnapped and sold the African people into bondage under the approval of Queen Elizabeth who only ask if any of them were 'taken against their will' and the answer was no that they were basically doing them a favor by introducing them into civilization. 

how african americans came here

They were brought by ship to be slaves on plantations and factories. African Americans came to America because they were either kidnapped or purchased from Africa or they were brought their from tribes that owned slaves.

Don't listen to the 1st guy, he obviously was breast feed by his father! I qoute... " The Spanish began slave trading in the West Indies in the 1600's.

Really...
Everything you said was true... except for the last part my friend.. Introducing them to civilization, wow... You do realize that the Sumerians introduced THE 1st CIVILAZTION....EVER back in 3rd early millennium B.C. and earlier.
The cities of Sumer were the first civilization to practice intensive, year-round http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/History_of_agriculture, by 5000 BC ...Educate yourself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Sumer

You and many others need to face the reality of things. Most things that whites THINK they came up with or introduced someone to something.. You haven't, nor are you the first to devise it. Early Blacks had the 1st civilization, the 1st to devise agriculture. While whites were living in caves... aka cave men, Blacks were living in a huge ass city, that had drinking lounges, music halls, medicine shops, hospitals.. etc .. This is just something like most has been kept from you since birth, odd thing is you are actually taught about the Sumerians in school its just no one ever references them as being black. Sorta of like how early Egyptians are perceived, they also were early black. Cleopatra was not black, Julius Caesar even describes her as the Nubian Queen.

WTF up America....seriously
African Americans arrived in America from the slave trade. They were bought and sold as slaves for cheap labor to maintain their crops or any or services someone required. At the time they were considered "lesser" than white people.
they traveled by slave ships all the slave would be at the bottom of the ship and then the Americans would be controlling the ship.
