Letters and papers revealing in detail how human beings were priced for sale during the 18 th century Transatlantic Slave Trade have been made available to researchers and the public. The collection contains the business exchanges of an 18 th century English landowner, William Philip Perrin, who ran a sugar plantation near Kingston, Jamaica. In it, Perrin and his correspondents discussed in callously practical terms the human cargo that was being shipped to the West Indies at the height of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, a time when the equivalent of millions of pounds were changing hands as slaves were bought and sold. While the College already holds a wide-ranging collection of material dealing with the anti-slavery movement, these documents tell the other, rarely-discussed side of the story, by providing an insight into the wealth and influence that lay behind the pro-slavery lobby. The collection is being added to an extensive range of material, already held by the College Library, dealing with the political and social conflicts faced by the anti-slavery campaigners in the fight for Abolition. This is made available both to researchers studying the period, and also used as part of educational activities with schools, enabling students to examine primary sources and discover the historic significance of the Abolitionist movement. Though appalling to modern eyes, for those involved these were matter-of-fact business transactions: a routine part of the 18 th century economy in which business magnates made substantial profits from commodities produced by slave labour and their customers benefited from cheap goods. In opposing the traffic in human cargo, Clarkson, Wilberforce and the Abolitionists were challenging powerful vested interests. Among letters and bills of sale specifying property disputes, shipping preparations and customs duties, are chilling details revealing the ubiquity and commercialisation of slavery and the vast industry it supported.

Lee were pulled down by protesters as a means to remove these looming figures from public spaces — here are 15 great photos of some rather creatively vandalized ones.

And now, after standing in the square since , it’s been replaced — by a statue of Black Lives Matter protester Jen Reid. According to the Guardian , the black resin and steel statue was erected in the early morning by ten people who had been working with Quinn on the project.

This, however, is only half the story. Like the United States, this land has its own history of slavery — and it is a history we should never forget. Slavery in what is now Canada predates the arrival of Europeans, with some Indigenous peoples enslaving prisoners taken in war. Unlike Indigenous people, Europeans saw enslaved people less as human beings and more as property that could be bought and sold. Just as importantly, Europeans viewed slavery in racial terms, with Indigenous and African people serving and white people ruling as masters.
The practice of slavery among Indigenous groups in Canada varied from one group to another. The runaway slave, who shall continue to be so for one month from the day of his being denounced to the officers of justice, shall have his ears cut off, and shall be branded with the flower de luce on the shoulder…. On the third offence, he shall suffer death. Part of Article 32 of the 2nd edition of the Code Noir. Although there is no evidence the Code Noir was formally proclaimed in New France, it appears to have been used as customary law.
The colony of New France, founded in the early s, was the first major settlement in what is now Canada.

Slavery ended in the United States in with the end of the American Civil War and the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution , which declared that, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction”.

This research guide gives an overview of the major primary sources at The National Archives that relate to aspects of the slave trade, slavery and unfree labour in the British Caribbean and American colonies.
It covers records created throughout the trade, from the 16th to the 19th centuries. This guide is not a history of the transatlantic slave trade. The transatlantic slave trade was essentially a triangular route from Europe to Africa, to the Americas and back to Europe. On the first leg, merchants exported goods to Africa in return for enslaved Africans, gold, ivory and spices.
The ships then travelled across the Atlantic to the American colonies where the Africans were sold for sugar, tobacco, cotton and other produce. The Africans were sold as slaves to work on plantations and as domestics. The goods were then transported to Europe. Britain was one of the most successful slave-trading countries. Britain was the most dominant between and and it is estimated that Britain transported 3.

America has achieved a lot of firsts: First man on the moon, first to have a person cross the continent of Antarctica alone , first to make a burger with 20, calories. But we were not the first nation to outlaw slavery, whatever anyone may claim. Spain, for instance, banned it in France technically banned it twice before we did: Outlawing slavery in its colonies in , reestablishing it in , and managing a more permanent prohibition when it banned it a second time in This is somewhat surprising because, at one point, we had a lead when it came to the abolition movement.

It was flat and dusty in the north-eastern corner of Chechnya; stunted trees dotted the landscape and sheep nibbled at the little greenery there was to eat. I was there with anti-slavery NGO Alternative, tearing along dirt roads in search of a farm where they suspected two men were being held as slaves. Australia’s Walk Free Foundation estimated in that more than 1 million people are thought to be held against their will in Russia.
They are among society’s most vulnerable: often homeless, alone and with alcohol or drug dependencies. Many first travel to Moscow from Russia’s regions or from central Asian states looking for work. There, at train and bus stations, they are promised jobs in far-flung reaches of the Russian Federation, frequently the Russian Caucasus, a majority Muslim region in the country’s south-west.
Alternative say they have freed more than slaves since they were founded six years ago. He said the group has informal ties to the secret services in Dagestan, but not in Chechnya, where Kremlin-backed strongman Ramzan Kadyrov works actively to prevent non-Chechen groups operating on his territory. To avoid attention, the activists decide to cross into the region by car from neighbouring Dagestan, accompanied by a member of Russia’s security services who they said took time off to help. After an hour and a half driving through scrubby terrain we found the farm where the slaves were being kept.
A few hundred metres away was year-old Boris Dainix, who phoned Alternative asking for help, walking out to muster the sheep with the help of a walking stick. A man of few words, he said he had to bring in the flock before leaving, so the wolves would not get to them. Born in Dagestan, he was offered a job on a farm in Chechnya 17 years ago and has worked on several since then.
