How did most africans become slaves?

1 Answer

  • Before the Europeans came over to Africa, they had a slave trade. Africans in power, such as kings, would capture other Africans and enslave them, especially if they were from a tribe they were fighting. When the Europeans came over, the African kings started to trade these captured people for technology, like guns. The Europeans would them put them onto miserable ships and they would be brought over to America.
