Commissioner of Education's African American History

African Americans did not freely come to America. This is not a history of a people seeking to escape political oppression, economic exploitation, religious intolerance, or social injustice. Rather the ancestors of the present African Americans were stolen from the continent of Africa, placed on ships against their wills, and transported across the Atlantic. While most of the enslaved Africans went to Brazil and Cuba, a great portion landed in the Southern States of the United States. At the height of the European Slave Trade almost every nation in Europe was involved in some aspect of the enterprise. As the "trade" grew more profitable and the European captains became more ambitious, larger ships with specially built "slave galleries" were commissioned. These galleries between the decks were no more than eighteen inches in height. Each African was allotted no more than a sixteen inches wide and five and a half feet long space for the many weeks or months of the Atlantic crossing. Here the Africans were forced to lie down shackled together in chains fastened to staples in the deck. Needless to say, many Africans perished under such conditions. Where the space was two feet high Africans were often allowed to sit with legs on legs like riders on a crowed sled. Africans were transported from Africa to America seated in this position with a once a day break for exercise. Many died or went insane.
