Description

The Transatlantic Slave Trade is one of the most inhumane episodes in human history. It is a highly emotional topic, that pupils often find difficult to comprehend. These activities break down the main teaching points of the trade in Slaves. It addresses the way in which triangular trade worked.  It introduces some imagery associated with the abolition movements. Comparisons between the 18th century and the modern day are included, to allow discussion about continuity and change, human rights and what freedom is.
