Documenting the Past. Slavery: From Africa to the Americas by Christine Hatt.

The slave trade between Africa and the Americas lasted over 300 years, from the mid-16th to the late 19th century. During this time, at least 24 million Africans were taken from their homes by force. This book charts the history of these people from their capture in west Africa and transportation across the Atlantic Ocean to their new lives in the Americas. It looks at how enslaved people lived in North America and the Caribbean islands, and highlights their constant fight against enslavement. Finally, it examines the developments in Europe and the USA that brought slavery to an end. The book brings the history of slavery alive through the voices of ship owners, plantation owners, abolitionists, religious leaders and, most of all, through the diaries, writings and recollections of enslaved people themselves.
