Slave trade and slavery have existed throughout the world for millennia. As the Atlantic slave trade began, slavery became associated with blacks, and antiblack racism became very powerful in Europe and the Americas. This chapter discusses the development of the Atlantic slave trade and its devastating impact on Africa. In particular, it looks at how the European powers imposed on Africa the financial cost, destruction, social disorganization, demoralization, and population loss caused by warfare and kidnapping Africans for enslavement.

Keywords:   Slave trade, slavery, Atlantic slave trade, blacks, antiblack racism, Europe, Americas, Africa, enslavement
