8 Slavery, Ships and Sickness – Professor Stuart Anderson

Back to menu

3 nov. 2011

The full-rigged ship was the essential technology that enabled the trans-Atlantic slave trade to flourish. Between 1698 and 1807 around 11,000 ships were fitted out in England for the slave trade, transporting around three million Africans. 

But the trade also employed other vessels, from in-shore boats supplying the slavers, to the Navy vessels that protected them. Sickness and disease were constant companions to both slaves and crew. Mortality amongst both was high, from disease, mistreatment, accident and suicide. 

Dr Stuart Anderson explores the relationship between ships, slavery and sickness, and considers the measures eventually taken to improve health at sea.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:

this is a fantastic teaching resource. thank you for sharing this – it is very clear, emotive and told from a clear African family’s perspective, so is immensely valuable. I think this is even better than Alex Haley’s book Roots (1976) and film version.

12 History of Arab Slave Trade

Back to menu

27 okt. 2019

In 1842CE, the British Consul General in Morocco wrote a letter to the Sultan to ask him if he had taken any measures to stop slavery or at least, slave trade. The sultan replied that he will not do anything about it because it has been the norm since the time of the sons of Adam and no sects of Islam are against it. Hence, he will not permit anything the Qur’an forbids and will not make unlawful anything that the Qur’an has allowed. In the Sultan’s reply, we see the simplest justification or at least, excuse, for almost 1300 years of slavery in the Islamic world.
 
This video is part of a bigger collaboration between various YouTube History channels on the topic of Africa. Don’t forget to watch the video before this one by Stefan Milo on the Swahili Culture.

Al Muqaddimah
Due to the rigorous efforts of Somalis on this channel and my Facebook and my Instagram and my Discord, I have to clarify that my source does not state (neither do I, in the video) that it was ethnic Somalis who were enslaved in large volume. There are various ethnic groups in Somalia and it might have been meant towards another group, specifically, Somali Bantus. My apologies for the confusion.
Jermaine Jackson
Slavery is an evil, ungodly institution, regardless of who performs it.
Najka Vlado
As a Somali im embarrased to see Somalis defending what arabs did saying that it never happened its very shamefull
Ridgley River-Jedd
This particular subject is not taught in schools, just the transatlantic European salvery. This is just as important.
Linda Lemos
A very very important and ingored history… there is still a lot dileberatly not talked about here
 
Their where many more that died from being castrated too. In Tanzania we are still finding bones of slaves at the beaches of some costal towns like bagamoyo.
Marcielle Gosselin
There is still slavery going on. They enslave people who think they are coming for legitimate jobs, take their passports and abuse them. They call them their housekeepers, nannies, etc. Slavery is still alive and well.
Nyamal Solomon
Finally someone is telling about the Arab slave trade, i’m from South Sudan so i definitely know about this it’s a shame that African Muslims mostly don’t feel confrontable with HISTORY because of who did it.
shaw sow
It’s time for Africa to stand up for its people througout the diaspora. Starting in Africa!

13 Bananasplit – Meisje kraakt de kluis – Dat kan niet, dat kán niet! Het kan wel…..

Back to menu

30 aug. 2015

xplore2012

Eindelijk……naar deze hilarische verborgen cameragrap van Bananasplit heb ik zo lang gezocht! En dan vandaag, zomaar in de uitzending van Bananasplit op Best24.

Ff op een knullige manier vastgelegd, maar mag de pret niet drukken!

BANANASPLIT – KRAAK DE CODE EN OPEN DE KLUIS
Meisje doet een poging om op de beursstand van ‘Remmers Kluizen’ de code van de brandkast te kraken om zo 10000 gulden te winnen.

De eigenaar ziet glimlachend toe hoe een meisje haar best doet om de code van de kluis te kraken.

Het lachen vergaat hem echter snel als ze na een paar minuten de kluisdeur écht opendraait en euforisch de enveloppe met 10000 gulden aan haar moeder laat zien.

Zelden iemand zo onthutst zien reageren: “Dit kán niet! Dit kán niet…….Het is absoluut onmogelijk.
Er zijn 3 miljoen combinaties te maken met deze kluis……dit kán dus niet!………Tja…… Het kan dus wel…..”‘

En toch kan het niet 😉
