What do we know about it?Edit

This fit's into the eveidence of the Triangular Trade because it shows that African Americans had to work for white people.It shows that their kids were watching their parents do these things for white people without getting paid. They even got wiped and killed and even raped when ever they did something wrong or didnt even do any thing at all.Their kids would even have to work so that the work can get done faster.

In "History in Puerto Rico" a wikipedia article it says in Puerto Rico, as in many other countries, slave owners would insult black workers and mke them labor under poor working conditions for little or no money. Many slaves worked in sugarcane fields, others in manufacturing or other types of jobs.

Why should a high school student study this object?Edit

High school students should study this object because it shows things that the history text books dont show or tell you.The stuff that they cut out.Also, there were feelings in these pictures.They were more realistic than the ones that you may have seen in books.High schools students should see this because they can learn alot from just looking at the picture and they can really see what happened when people were slaves.
