"Slavery in America" describes the terrible experience of African slaves who were shipped to the American colonies and auctioned off like animals to work on the plantations. It was well over a hundred years before a later generation of slaves could call themselves free. Only after the Civil War between the North and the South was slavery in America abolished by law. Even then, black people were still treated as second-class citizens, unable to vote and segregated from the white community by the infamous Jim Crow laws.
