Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trader, The Owner, The Slave: Parallel Lives in the Age of Slavery (Paperback)
I am currently doing a history course and we are covering slavery. The different perspectives offered in this trilogy have helped a great deal. The harshness of the traders and owners will never cease to amaze and disgust normal decent people. The excuse that ' it was acceptable then....' does not wash! It is clear from this account that racism was born from the trade to make the traders feel justified. Many have held the view that slavery grew because of racism... wrong oh so wrong. I must stop before I get too angry about the issue.
