Transcript of Slave Journey

Slave Journey The Songhai Tribe The Middle Passage New Orleans Slave Port Bibliography By Evan, Stowe, and Alex French Colonized New Orleans in 1718 Labor Shotages, slaves were needed to fill jobs Treated average for slave, also used differently than the traditional British way Only expected to live around 40 years Conclusion The whole process of the Slave trade is related. Every part connects, without the supply of slaves, there would be no middle passage resulting in no slaves in the Americas or Europe. Although the slave trade was a terrible thing and this does not justify it, but without it the South's economy could not have prospered the way it did and many other countries would have struggled in collecting resources. The Slave trade also set off so many long term problems that are still felt in the world today, a main one being that Africa was deprived of its culture and had to take technological and econmical injuries because they lost so many of there people. Would Africa be one of the leading countries if the slave trade had never occured? The Songhai Tribe was located in Eastern Mali, Western Niger, and Northern Benir The people of Songhai were muslim They usually traded items such as Gold and Salt and often traded with Gao, Djenne, and Tombouctov Their main resources were Gold and Salt The Songhai broke away from Mali and then started to expand and conquer in 1325 They mainly spoke Arabic, but also had some native languages The Middle Passage was the route from Western Africa to the Americas in which slaves were brought The African People were taken by becoming prisoners captured and sold to the Europeans by their own kings In the ships of the middle passagem everyone was in the hold, slaves were whipped and brought to the deck to dance and exercised daily. They were chained in placem no cleaning, and no bathrooms or medicine. The hold was a layer of disease an human waste 9-15 million Africans were taken from Africa The Europeans had to come up with justifications to why they could the Africans the way they were, so they decided that they were "cargo" and not people; black people were inferior There were many consequences to the slaves who had to take this journey including that they would never be able to go back to their homeland, and if not for this vile act there would be not African Americans.

They also created a lot of pottery, grass mats, and woven baskets The people of Songhai used music to praise and sooth people for example; women would sing to their husbands, prasing them if they got back from war. The instruments they used were the Griots and Molos, which are both variations of a guitar type banjo made of hollowed out wood with a neck and one string. They also had the usual African drums.
