Raw materials produced by slaves
Transatlantic slave trade was a triangular trade route.
There are 3 sections on the route:
1 - Africa provided labour
2 - America: slave labour produced raw material on plantations.
3 - Europe: industrial workers in factories turned the raw material into manufactured goods (cloth and alcohol).
