Transatlantic Slavery: An Introduction
Richard Benjamin and David Fleming
Over a four-hundred-year period at least twelve million Africans were taken into slavery in the largest forced migration in human history. This introductory book, which draws upon a wealth of material held by the International Slavery Museum, tells their story and examines the legacy of this bloody trade.
"The enslavement of Africans fuelled the economic development of the US and the world – so in that sense, African people, whether in the US or Britain, are creditors, not debtors. From finance to cotton, shipping and trade, no economic development in the world could have evolved without the contributions – as enslaved people – of African people."
