Joseph Kleinman (au); Eileen Kurtis-Kleinman (au)

This book describes the brutal & inhuman life for Africans aboard the European slave ships between the 16th & 19th centuries. During this 300-year period, millions of Africans crossed the Atlantic crowded in ships originally intended to carry cargo. Many died during the voyage, the victims of terrible mistreatment. They were whipped, force fed, stowed in crowded slave decks, & frightened into submission. Sailors often mistreated & brutalized slaves to intimidate them & thereby suppress rebellion.
