African-American History: Slavery
Slavery in America has existed for more than four centuries. It started in the 16th century when the first African slaves were taken to the North American colony. The slaves were required to aid in the agricultural activities that were taking place in the region by then. The African slaves were taken as cheap and more plentiful source of laborers in the production of lucrative crops such as tobacco and cotton that was later introduced in the 18th century. There were many movements formed to fight for the reconstruction of the African-American bond which lead to the American civil war of the 18th century. Many people were lynched in the process but still, there were no signs of giving up on the war against slavery.
Understanding the issue of slavery that existed in the past centuries and the contribution of the blacks to the economy of the western countries is of great significance. Take for example; the current President of the United States of America is an African-American. This shows that, despite the discriminations that existed in the past and one that might still exist in the current world, it is important for the Americans to understand that the blacks have played a great role on the developments that have been noted in the western countries.
