The Middle Passage

Slave Trade

What is the Middle Passage?

The Middle Passage was the journey slaves were forced to make from Africa to the West Indies and the Americas. It was a terrible journey that the people were packed into a space with only 3 feet or room. They got little food but when they were given food, they were force fed. All of there bodily fluids were disposed on top of each other and they were beaten, if not killed.
