VIEWS: 28 PAGES: 22

[...] the trans-Atlantic slave trade had an immediate, detrimental, economic, demographic, political, and social impact on African societies and cultures and continues to do so well into the twenty-first century. The traumatic effects of the trans-Atlantic slave trade have had centuries to unleash themselves, unlike those of other equally dramatic but more recent historical events like World War I, the Holocaust, or the bombing of Hiroshima.

                                                                LAURA MURPHY


                      In the early days our forebears sold their kinsmen into
                      slavery for minor items such as beads, mirrors, alcohol,
                      and tobacco. These days, the tune is the same, only the
                      articles have changed into cars, transistor radios, and bank
                      accounts. Nothing else has changed, and nothing will
                      change in the foreseeable future.
