Slavery
is - Newest pictures
Throughout history some 200 million
people were enslaved. For more than
1000 years, Arab traders transported
small groups of African slaves; the
first record of a sizable slave trade
dates to the 7th century. The majority
of African slaves were acquired
through wars by African rulers. One
famous traders, Madam Tinubu, grew
from rags to riches from it. But another
African trader who called himself
Grandy King George once specified a
payment of only “one lucking-glass,
six foot long by six foot wide,” an
armchair, a stool and a cane. Not well
known – and hardly spoken about – is
that millions of Europeans were also
traded as slaves. In the 17th and 18th
centuries large numbers of poor
whites were kidnapped on the streets
of Europe and sold in the West Indies
and elsewhere. Most countries in the
world, including African countries,
traded with slaves. Excluded were
Russia and the Balkan countries. And,
unlike what you might have expected,
the slave trade is very active today
still.
