AFRICAN AMERICAN SLAVERY 2
Slavery has there at almost every part of the world. From the Americans to the
Greece, people have been using others as slaves for their own benefits. This happens in most
cases under the appearance of social, technological progress as well as mercantile. In an early
seventeenth century, that when U.S legacy of slavery began. In the fourteenth century, it also
existed though not that much as compared to the seventeenth century (Levine, 2007). This
was when the most developed countries like Portugal and Spain used Africans as slaves in
Europe.it was in the sixteenth century that slavery became real and it had expanded in the
Northern part of America. In 1619, this is when the first Africans were brought in the colonial
America by a Dutch ship. The 20 Africans who were brought were indentured servants. This
meant that they were to work for a specific period of time in exchange for conveyance and
room and board. Soon after their service they were assigned land for which they were
referred to as free Negroes. They had been forced to be there since the work was not
voluntary. Since the year 1619, African American underwent very severe suffering for which
their living was all about mystery and disappointment.
During the times of the Atlantic slave trade, there was a very high collision of
cultures. This originated from the intermingling of the customs of Europeans, Americans and
the Africans mostly from the western part of Africa. Slavery primarily affected Africans and
almost compromised their cultural practices. Despite the fact that a lot has been
compromised, they were not willing to leave behind their traditions and thus they managed to
retain a number of them while still in American soil. Most of the first African Americans
experienced a lot of external oppressions despite the fact that were mostly enslaved
spiritually, mentally and physically as well. Africans still managed to hold on their old ways
of living although they had been influenced a lot by the Americans. There is clear evidence
that shows that the survival of African-American is inextricably rooted from the west-African
customs and traditions.
