      Big Idea: Abolition of Slavery

 The summary of this article is that no one should be treated unfairly to suit the advantages of others but slavery and capitalism go hand in hand.

 

The summary of this article is that in Those days there were  calls for the awareness and eradication of modern-day slavery, including child labor, trafficking, sexual exploitation, forced marriage, and the use of children in armed conflict.

 

 

The summary of this article is thatThe method of abolition then proposed was so gradual that its realisation would have taken half a century or more. Slave rebellions however forced Parliament to enact legislation in 1833 which ended slavery on 1 August 1838 and this is the focus of our student learning activities.

 

The summary is that Slavery and involuntary servitude, except for crime, is hereby abolished and prohibited in the State forever.

Slavery was one word that has transcended time, in words and actions; it was as common today as it was years ago, howbeit in different ways.

 

People were treated very badly. Example The slaves were kept in dungeons, just like the one shown in this video. The women were held naked in dark dungeons. There was no toilet. They lived and ate in the dungeon. They were not allowed to bathe for months. The women were often used as sex slaves. Soldiers were allowed to peer into the entrance of the dungeon and select who they wanted for the night. The women who were selected were hosed down and removed from the dungeon. They were used and abused by the men. Those who became pregnant were thrown in to the sea because most of the men had wives in their home country.

 

 

The summary of this article is that people started abducting (kidnapping, stealing) men, women and children from Africa. They treated them like luggage and took them to America in ships to be sold as slave

 

  The summary is about the abolition of slavery in the French colonies and how it happened

People who were praying for slavery to stop

 

This article is about how metal band would be locked onto an enslaved person’s wrist to show they were considered the property of someone else.

 

 

 

This article is about how  kids and other people , where corporated criminals  actually jailed for their financial crimes.

 

 

 

 

Slavery was a strong institution in the Southern Colonies. Many people favored slavery. Slaves were need to work on large plantations that supplied rice, tobacco, and cotton to the world. There were so many slaves that control would be difficult. - See more at: http://www.chacha.com/question/explain-4-specific-reasons-that-made-the-abolition-of-slavery-very-unlikely.

 

 

Britain banned slavery throughout its empire.  It got me thinking about slavery and modern slavery which is alive and doing well.  

 

This is a project about abolition slavery

       1.  The goal of the abolitionist movement was the immediate emancipation of all slaves and the end of racial discrimination and segregation.

    2.  No matter what its origins, by the early 1800s, it was firmly established as a derogative name. In the 21st century, it remains a principal term of White racism, regardless of who is using it.

    3.  Slavery in the United States was the legal institution that existed in the United States Of America in the 17th to 19th centuries.
