One of my biggest pet peeves: Africans are not one monolithic group of people with one way of life, or religion, family strucutre etc. as well Africans that were captured were not SLAVES, they were enslaved. Laslty world history does not begin with European conquest, European conquest is an interruption in the history of global African peoples. If you cant even get this right… stop talking and get back to studying.
