Slavery is one brutal phenomenon associated with the centuries in the past.
The only problem as to why it may preferably not be seen as a socio-economical system is that the Africans accounted for nearly 90% of the victims at this time.
Countries that immensely benefited from slavery includes the Dutch, Britain, Portugal and more.
For United States of America, as many tobaccos, and cotton industrialist forced Africans and other defenceless tribes to till their soil or get killed.
The Year of Return is a memorable milestone in the history of Africans as it was enshrined to mark the arrival of the first enslaved innocent Africans on American soil (Jamestown, Virginia).
Africans were kidnapped, bought and stolen.
The torture, deprivation, humiliation, raping, beatings, killings suffered in the hands of the slave-master inspire Africans home and in the diaspora to take part in the remembrance of their forefathers.
