A Dutch ship named ‘Man Of War’ carrying 20 Africans arrived in Jamestown, VA. This voyage would mark the beginning of slavery in the American colonies. 

The number of slaves continued to grow between the 17th and 18th centuries, as slave labor was used to help fuel the growing tobacco and cotton industries in the southern states.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward
