Slaves would often commit suicide by jumping overboard or refusing to eat.
About 15% of the Africans died at sea.
Slaves were transported in the most horrible and inhumane way possible. They were crammed together so tightly that they almost couldn't move. They were fed the most horrible food only to keep them strong so the crew would get money at the other end. As the slaves were only taken out of the hold to be exercised all of their urine and excrement stayed where it was. Many of the slaves caught diseases such as dysentery and died. Most unfortunately, some of the women, and even children, were also used for the "personal gratification" of crew members. The slaves were beaten for the smallest things often until they died. On average only half of the slaves who set off from Africa got to the Americas alive. Horrible.
The conditions on the slave ships were horrible and inhumane. The slaves did not get food or water making a lot of them die. The ships were not kept clean and the people were packed in on top of each other making the spread of disease encouraged. The people who were made to be slaves were branded, and treated worse than animals.
