They ring the slaves to a ship ship goes to the west indians. they traded slaves for money. ones there they sell slaves. When they sell the slaves they buy sugar rum and cotton and bring to Europe and sell ti there. .They then buy more guns and stuff to bring to African to trade for slaves.

    the atlantic slave trade was a horrible Thing and it contiued for 300 years . It started in Africa. The Europeans brought guns, glass, and stuff for slaves in Africa . They then brought the slaves to North America they sold them to work and then bought raw materials to Africa so they could sell it.
