Even though he was ready return to America, recapture still remained a possibility for him if and when he came back. Fortunately, this problem was resolved when unknowingly; two English friends raised enough money to buy his freedom (6). $710.96 was sent to the Auld family and on December 5, 1846; Hugh Auld signed the papers that declared Frederick Bailey a free man (5). In the spring of 1847, Douglass returned to America, where his work remained to free his people in

Lottie Jones Hood’s approach starts off by introducing herself to the International Congregational Journal and giving her reasons of interest in this topic. Hood begins by stating: “ There would have been no Underground Railroad in the United States had there been no Trans Atlantic Slave Trade in the global economy of the world”, (Hood, 48). Historical background on the Transatlantic Slave Trade is then provided by Hood in which she addresses that the Europeans and African nations engaged in an economic practice that enslaved many millions of Africans between the years 1441 through 1888 (Hood, 49). She also addresses that voyage for those enslaved and taken by the British; the famous Middle Passage took around six to eight weeks and slaved who survived the horribly described voyage were sold off in the markets as slaves (Hood, 50). More historical context is the provided by her in which she states that the first Africans were brought to North America to Jamestown, Virginia in 1619.
Surviving the Great Sea Two first person, 16th century narratives share similarities of having observational information, being a reflective essay, and only focusing on one event. But have difference of settings and situations. “La Relacion” written by Cabeza De Vaca is an objective report to his king on the mission to the new continent. While “The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano” by Olaudah Equiano is a narrative written about a 10 year old slave’s subjective experiences aboard the slave ship.

Revolving around his new found faith, Equiano begins to believe his situation is a result of God’s punishment for his sins, resigning himself to his new life. He is then sold yet again to a Mr. Robert King, a “charitable and humane” Quaker merchant, where Equiano is involved in a variety of positions, from loading boats to clerking and serving as a personal groom while being hired out to other merchants. Working on board the ship of one of King’s boat captains, Thomas Farmer, he becomes heavily reliant on Equiano and hires him for a multitude of journeys from the West Indies to North America, where he told Equiano’s master “[he] was better to him on board than any three white men he had” filling Equiano with a sense of pride and opportunity. Along with his educational knowledge this also gave Equiano a sense that he was not sub-ordinate to any white man purely as a result of the colour of his skin, as we have recently established “As early humans moved into hot, open environments in search of food and water, one big challenge was keeping cool. The adaptation that was favoured involved an
Solomon Northup’s Twelve Years a Slave is a book about his experience as a slave during the 19th century, set firstly in Saratoga, New York, then in Washington and lastly in New Orleans, Louisiana.

American slavery began in 1619 when the first African slaves were brought to the North American colony of Jamestown, Virginia. They were brought to help the production of crops like tobacco. After 1619, when a Dutch ship brought 20 Africans ashore, slavery started to spread throughout the American colonies and became widely known. Even though some information is not completely accurate, a few historians have found that six to seven million slaves were forced into the New World just during the 18th century, leaving the continent of Africa without some of its healthiest and ablest men and women.

Africans were involved in slavery many years before the Europeans. They never based their slavery on race, but on strong vs.weak(tribes). A system where Monarchs, Merchants,and Mercenaries was the chain of being. War was a part of everyday life in Africa, so the tribe that won the war would take other tribe members in hostage. Port Loko, a city with Tempnies(collected captives) , would border slaves in ships, send them down the river where they would be sold to the Europeans for profits.
