August 20, 1619: 20 Africans Arrive In Jamestown, Virginia

0 Posted by - August 20, 2018 - BLACK FAMILY, Injustices, LATEST POSTS, Looking Black On Today, POLITICS, Racism, SLAVERY

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
    for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the
    images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    I have been browsing online greater than three hours today,
    yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.
