This is a 28 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Age of Exploration & Discovery - the Atlantic Slave Trade. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Atlantic Slave Trade, also known as the Transatlantic Slave Trade, was the trade of African persons supplied to the European colonies of the "New World.” It lasted from the 16th century to the 19th century. The slave-trade is sometimes called the “Maafa” by African and Black scholars. The Maafa, means "holocaust" or "great disaster" in Swahili.
Most slaves were shipped from West Africa and Central Africa and taken to the New World. Some slaves were captured by European slave traders through raids and kidnapping, but most were obtained through coastal trading with fellow Africans.
The Transatlantic Slave Trade is unique within the history of slavery for 3 main reasons.
Its duration: It lasted approximately 4 centuries.
Those victimized: Black African men, women, & children.
The legitimization attempted on its behalf: The development of an anti-black ideology and its legal organization, the Code Noir.
The slave trade involved several regions and continents: Africa, America, the Caribbean, Europe and the Indian Ocean.
