For school i have to draw a political cartoon about the african slave trade, any ideas on what i should draw?
some topics are:
-did the europeans introduce slavery to africa?
-what 2 factors associateed with the discovery of America led to a drastic increase in european involvement in the african slave trade?
-draw a simple map showing the continents and trade items involved in the triangular trade
-create a graph showing the number of slaves exported from africa in the 16th 17th and 18th centuries
-why was the death rate among enslaved persons so high?
-what were 2 african views of the slave trade?
I'd have to be really sarcastic in this one, and certainly it might not be accepted.
SLAVERY by any definition is likely the most immoral act anyone of us as a species has inflicted on another.
Beyond the fact that you add too much diologue to your detail, I suggest you Express it as the most vile of things.
I offer an anaology that might not be accpeted by the African American community, which I am not a member of, but empathize with.
Assume for a moment that anyone in any level of prison administration is as much a "prisoner" as are the "inmates"
That said, I think you should craft an image showing slave gatherers, sellers, owners,,, with shackles, chains, etc. around their necks, legs, wrists, even in an assumed view of LEADING their captors.
Beyond that, and with no real offense to you. WHY do you ask OTHERS to do your research on such a vaild topic. GADS!
