Slavery has occurred in many forms throughout the world, but the Atlantic slave trade — which forcibly brought more than 10 million Africans to the Americas — stands out for both its global scale and its lasting legacy. Anthony Hazard discusses the historical, economic and personal impact of this massive historical injustice.

The slave trade refers to the historical practice of buying, selling, and transporting enslaved people for forced labor. It was a brutal and inhumane system that had a profound impact on world history. Here are some key points about the slave trade:
Historical scope: The slave trade took place over several centuries, with the transatlantic slave trade being the most well-known. It lasted from the 16th to the 19th centuries and involved the forced transportation of millions of African people to the Americas, where they were enslaved on plantations and in other industries.
Scale and magnitude: The slave trade was a massive operation, involving European slave traders, African slave sellers, and indigenous peoples who were complicit in the capture and sale of enslaved individuals. It is estimated that between 10 and 12 million Africans were forcibly transported to the Americas as slaves, with millions more dying in the process or being subjected to horrific conditions during the voyage known as the Middle Passage.
Economic motivations: The slave trade was driven by economic motives, as slave labor was used to exploit the vast natural resources of the Americas, such as sugar, tobacco, cotton, and other cash crops. European powers and their colonies benefited economically from the exploitation of enslaved labor, which contributed to the growth of their economies and the development of capitalism.
Human suffering: Enslaved people experienced unimaginable suffering, including brutal treatment, harsh living conditions, forced labor, physical and sexual abuse, and separation from their families and communities. The slave trade resulted in the loss of culture, language, and identity for millions of Africans, as well as the intergenerational trauma that continues to impact African diaspora communities today.
Resistance and abolition: Enslaved people and abolitionists fought against the slave trade and slavery through various means, including uprisings, revolts, rebellions, and organized resistance. Abolitionist movements gained traction in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, leading to the eventual abolition of the transatlantic slave trade by several European countries, and later the abolition of slavery itself in many parts of the Americas.
Legacy and impact: The legacy of the slave trade is still felt today, as it has had a profound and lasting impact on global politics, economics, culture, and social structures. It has shaped the racial dynamics, demographics, and inequalities that exist in many countries, and continues to be an important part of the ongoing conversations about social justice, reparations, and systemic racism.
It’s important to note that the slave trade was a horrific violation of human rights and remains one of the darkest chapters in human history. Understanding its key points and acknowledging its impact is crucial for comprehending the complex legacy it has left behind and working towards a more just and equitable future.

Today we’re learning about the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which brought millions of captive Africans to the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries, with the largest number of people trafficked between 1700 and 1808. We’ll look at the ships and crews that brought enslaved people across the ocean via what was known as the Middle Passage and explore the horrific conditions that these captives endured.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Trans-Atlantic slave Trade
Hello Displorers, welcome to another informative video presented to you by Displore. In this video, we shall take you back centuries to a dark time in history to bring out 10 things you probably didn’t know about the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The Atlantic slave trade involved the transportation by slave traders of enslaved African people mainly to the Americas. The slave trade regularly used the triangular trade route and its Middle Passage, and supposedly existed from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The vast majority of those who were enslaved and transported in the transatlantic slave trade were people from Central and West Africa sold by other West Africans, or by half-European “merchant princes”while a small number were captured directly by the slave traders in coastal raids and brought to the Americas. Except for the Portuguese, European slave traders generally did not participate in the raids because life expectancy for Europeans in sub-Saharan Africa was less than one year during the period of the slave trade because of malaria. Ship owners regarded the slaves as cargo to be transported to the Americas as quickly and cheaply as possible to be sold as labour on several plantations as well as domestic servants. The first Africans kidnapped to the English colonies were classified as indentured servants, with a similar legal standing as contract-based workers coming from Britain and Ireland. However, by the middle of the 17th century, slavery had hardened as a racial caste, with African slaves and their future offspring being legally the property of their owners. In the early 21st century, several governments issued apologies for the transatlantic slave trade.

Despite the lots of information out there, there are several things about this dark time which many of us may or may not still know about. We were able to narrow these into 10 things you probably didn’t know about the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
1. The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Was Not Only a Triangular Trade
The ‘triangular trade’ wasn’t always triangular as it is mostly asserted because it also took a bilateral form. We commonly think of the Atlantic slave trade as a three-leg affair where slavers sailed from European ports carrying manufactured goods, traded those goods for captives on the African coast, then sailed to the New World, sold their prisoners, and returned to Europe, completing the triangle. But much of the trade to Brazil, however, was bilateral where slavers left Rio de Janeiro, headed to Angola, and came straight back to Brazil. What’s more, there were many other countries and groups involved in the dark trade who did not necessarily take the triangular route.
2. It started Long Before the Date Believed
The Spanish merchant Juan de Córdoba is believed to have first transported captured Africans to the Americas in 1502. The first slave voyage direct from Africa to the Americas is believed to have sailed in 1526 but even before then, Africans were brought over as slaves directly from Europe, and native inhabitants of America were enslaved by European explorers. The Portuguese began trafficking African captives in the 1440s long before the Wars of the Roses hadbegun in England. But it wasn’t initially a transatlantic trade as in the early days, enslaved Africans were brought to Portugal or to Atlantic islands like Madeira to work in agriculture.This indicates that the slave trade started long before the recorded time.
3. Th Number of Africans Traded is Much Higher Than Projected by Historians
Because of inadequate records, the number of people taken from Africa through enslavement remains unknown. Based on the shipping records historians estimate that between 9 million and 12million people were taken out of Africa by European slave traders and delivered alive on the other side of the Atlantic. An untold number, however, died resisting capture in the “slave raids,” died during the forced march to the coastal regions, died in slave forts while awaiting transport, and died en route as they travelled across the ocean. The lowest number for the total loss of life

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.

Gold, Silver & Slaves looks at how the business of slavery was a case of slave-trading by complicit Africans, fuelled by the greed of African kings.
This is the untold story of the greatest slaving nation in history. Up till now, Britain’s place in the history of slavery has been as the country that abolished the international slave trade.
Britain’s Slave Trade reveals the shameful truth behind this liberal facade, showing how the economic, social and cultural life of Britain would have been unrecognisable without slavery. Britain’s Slave Trade explains how a middling European power transformed itself into the ruler of the waves, tracing the impact this had on the British way of life and taking in the Industrial Revolution, the beginnings of Empire and the birth of modern racism along the way. It also unearths startling evidence showing how many families that think of themselves as ‘pure’ English stock are in fact descended from slave ancestors.

There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding the institution of slavery, especially here in the United States. These myths often serve pernicious political purposes that can be highly detrimental to a proper conception of history. So here are 10 of those myths debunked in no particular order.

1 – one example of white slavery I could have mentioned were the Amerindian slavers of Tans-Mississippi West, who would raid Spanish/Mexican colonies and visa/versa – but that is way too complicated for this myth.
2 – 3:20 – my bad, 1922 was the fall of the Ottoman Empire, 1918 was the end of WWI
5 – 7:10 – “any power not expressed” (the not is kind of difficult to hear)
7 – 8:30 – typo, Marx was born in 1818 not 1918, LOL

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 😉
