Transcript of Effect of slavery on todays society

Effect of slavery on today's society Why slavery was necessary to Americans Slavery has always been an issue because of the simple fact that oppressing any group of people is viewed as a negative issue. Slaves had to deal with the loss of freedom which included loss of education, loss of say in government, loss of family, and loss of guaranteed rights as a human being.
