Atlantic Slave Trade

The atlantic slave trade consisted of the transportation of about 12 million african americans to the americas

The trade began because expanding european empires in the new world needed one maijor thing....a work force and they knew that the africans worked well so they go them as slaves

The atlantic slave trade began around the mid fifthteenth century when portugeese intrest in africa moved away from gold to something more available slaves

As a result of the atlantic slave trade people of african descent can account for their familiesfrom africa to the americas through the atlantic slave trade
