Introduction

This unit is about slavery. Lesson 1 looks at slavery before the time when the United Kingdom started to ship hundreds of thousands of Africans to the Caribbean. For the next 4 weeks we will look at why slavery became so important to Britain and America, how some people became very keen that it should not continue and their campaign to stop it. Finally, ( if we do not run out of weeks) we will look at America in the 1950s to see just how slavery still affected the lives of many Afro-Americans long after the last slave was freed, and how this problem was eventually solved, once and for all.
