Why was there slavery?
there were countries in Europe (like Spain and other surrounding countries) who were exploring new lands and the last one that the europeans came across was Africa. and because of the skin color difference (which isn't because of anything other then our sun exposure!) they didn't really feel like those people were actually human. the Europeans had taken 10 people back to Europe and sold them to people to work for them.
Depends on what slavery. Jewish slavery in Egypt. Jewish slavery in Germany. Indian slavery in the US. Indian slavery in Spanish countries. African slavery in the US. African slavery in Africa (enslaved by Portuguese and English). African slavery of Africans. Russian slavery of the poor. Chinese slavery of debters. You should clarify there were many movements in different locations. I guess we were all slaves at one point or another.
