What is this?Edit

There are African American men and a woman working on a sugar cane plantation. One man is cutting down the sugar cane, another man is weeding the fields with a hoe there are white men who are walking around the plantation, observing the workers while they carry a whip in their hands. They are using tools to cut down the sugarcanes. In the far background there is a worker on the floor and there is a white man who is raising his whip getting ready to use it on the worker. In this picture there are three African American men working on a plantation. Two working together in the foreground of the picture there are 2 men who look like they're hitting holes in the dirt near the plants. With a white man looking at them while walking past them with a whip in his hand. Then the African American man in the background is crouching down near some plants because another white man is about to hit him with a whip. The black people are doing all the work and the white is carrying whips.

What do we know about it?Edit

This image helps us understand the Triangular Trade because you can see that the slaves brought from Africa to America are working for the Europeans. The Europeans is the one who profit. With only the African working all the money goes to the Europeans. The Africans were treated very badly also. They were the slaves of the European. One man is cutting cane; another is weeding the fields with a hoe. A white man is whipping an enslaved person. The Spanish took Africans for slaves in 1508. It ended in 1873. This picture helps demonstrate to us how the slaves were treated and the tasks they were force to endure.

Why should a high school student study this object?Edit

This image shows how the African slaves where treated by the European. It shows how the Europeans made the slaves do all the work and they would mistreat them. The Europeans were the only ones that would get everything out of the whole situation.
