Global Trade

Isabella Cruz

Colombian Exchange:

the global trade of goods during the colonization of the Americas

Triangular Trade:

Trade between Europe, Africa and the Americas

Middle Passage:

the voyage that brought African slaves over to the Americas; were treated very poorly

Used Africans instead of the Natives for slave labor because...

  • Africans were already exposed and immune to European diseases
  • Africans don't know the land as well making it harder for them to escape
  • already had experience with European farming
  • made it hard for them to escape because of their skin color
