From the shores of Africa in the 1600's to the shores of America in the 1800's, black men and women endured terrible hardships. From the horrors and stench of the slave ships to the embarrassment of the auction blocks, to the whippings of cruel taskmasters, life was a non-ending nightmare. Many slaves tried to escape this life always with the horrific fear of being captured and returned to the miserable life they had fled. They were treated as sub-human pieces of property with no rights and no dignity. The most bloody war in American history, The Civil war, brought an end to this shameful era.
