The Middle Passage

By: Bella Herook

On The Ship

The slaves were forced to live on the ship in 3 by 3 foot spaces, chained down on the ship.

What Happened to the Slaves

They were whipped

Forced to eat

Clothes were stripped away from them

What Happens if a Slave was Sick

If a slave was sick, they would be chained up to a weight that was thrown to the bottom of the ocean and they were killed this way. It was a a cruel way to rid of extra weight on the ship.
