Slavery went on from the 16th to the 19th century African people were captured by European slaves. They were then shipped across the Atlantic ocean to the North and South America. The conditions on the slave ships were temple and a lot of slaves died. They were thrown over bored and eaten by sharks.
Once they had aimed at their destination, they were sold to white people at auctions. The auctions were similar to cattle auctions and very humiliating. Their owners, just like cattle, then branded the slaves with a hot iron.
Some slaves worked at their owners/masters house as domestic servants. However most, slaves worked in the fields. Their working and living conditions were horrible and 25% died. Slaves of all ages had to work hard even children. Old slaves not granted retirement but had to care for other slave’s babies.
Once it had become illegal to capture new slaves, the plantation owners could still keep their slaves and raise their babies as new slaves.
Slavery was only abolished in 1863 when all alves became free.
A lot of slaves were shipped to south America but we mostly hear about the slaves in the US because of the Human Rights Movement there and because we know many famous black Americans.
