About the event

According to historical accounts, slave traders transported 15-20 million people to Europe, Central, and South America for over a period of 400 years. Many people see these centuries of slavery as one of the most tragic chapters in human history. The transatlantic slave trade was triangular because it involved West Africa, Europe, and the Americas, which form a triangle shape on the globe. Some African traders captured people and sold them to Europeans, who in turn ‘shipped’ the slaves to South America, Britain, and more. Millions of these captured and kidnapped people never arrived at the destinations of their oppressors. They died on the way. Others died soon after arrival.
