African Slave Trade - Close Up and Personal

From DidUKnow.com, read the stories of four slaves taken in 1780 by European traders. Each is written simply, from the perspective of the child or young person kidnapped into slavery.

Underlined words have explanations in pop-up boxes (The Igbo people, we learn, were from southern Nigeria ruled by village councils instead of a central king or chief, and heavily preyed on during the 18th century by British slave traders.)

Parents - read this first to see if the subject matter is too upsetting for your kids. It's very well done.
