The Middle Passage

The Middle Passage was the middle leg on a three part voyage that slaves had to take to the Americas. The first part of this trade was carrying iron, clothes, brandy, firearms and gunpowder to the slave port of Africa. There they traded all of the good for a full cargo ship of slaves. There they started the middle passage from Africa to the Americas. When the slaves arrived they were traded for sugar tobacco and other goods that came out of the Americas. Then the ship full of new goods from the Americas set off to Europe. This three part trade was called the Triangular Trade that involved Africa trading with the Americas and the Americas trading with Europe. The Middle passage was a terrible experience for the Africans because they had no idea what they were being taken for. No one who left to go to Europe ever returned and they likely did not believe what the whites told them. Many thought that the Europeans were cannibals. But yet they were forced to go and were packed in by the hundreds onto to ships and hauled off never to be seen again.
