SLAVE TRADE AND ITS EFFECTS 2
Slave trade and its effects in Africa
Introduction
Despite the end of colonization and the colonial powers on the African nations, the
effects to these actions are felt in most of the African countries in the modern-day society (Kalu,
& Falola, 2019). The African continent was impacted by colonialism intensively both positively
and negatively on the aspects of the social, political, and economic contexts. On a positive
perspective, colonization brought about new products, improvement of technology, and the
creation of adequate jobs for the Africans. However, it also led to long-term effects that include
civil unrest, racism, foreign diseases to both humans and animals, and insatiable greed to the
African continent, among other negative impacts. The primary focus shifts to the critical
economic effect of colonization and thus the slave trade and its impact, as it significantly
transformed the African societies, majorly Western Africa, where it began and thrived.
Slave trade resulted in the social and ethnic-based fragmentation of the families and
communities, political instability, corruption of the judicial systems, and weakened nations and
cities in Africa (Felix, 2020). Additionally, the implementation of slave trade resulted to the
long-term effects that are still felt in the globe today through the economic exploitation of the
blacks and thus led to the social division between the creamy-white and the poor black societies,
a consequence still felt today in the American communities due to emancipation era. In
analyzing the slave trade and its effects especially to the African Continent, one will focus on
Ghana initially known as Gold Coast, for the plentiful supply of gold from the mines as one of
the nations in Western Africa where most of the slaves originated. The following article will
adequately address more of the slave trade in Africa and its effects on the Ghanaian's, African
nations, and the globe at large.
