This paper discusses the personal perspective of the Atlantic slave trade. The paper discusses how the readers' previous beliefs were significantly altered because the facts that were presented, implicated Africa as a factor in the business of selling human lives. Traditionally students are taught that all citizens of Africa were victims in the slave trade and that the barbaric treatment that millions of Africans experienced was because of the actions of Europeans and Americans greedy for prosperity at any cost. The paper discusses how this historical ideology may be prevalent throughout society, but it is not completely factual. Additionally, it was difficult to accept the fact that individuals throughout Africa would allow the slave trade to continue, despite the fact that their fellow countrymen were being adversely affected.
