The Africans suffered negative consequences of the slave trade which affected them emotionally, physically and tore many families and communities apart. It is estimated that the Atlantic Slave Trade brought more than six hundred thousand Africans to the 13 British colonies from the 1700 to 1775, in the worst conditions any persons can imagine. To begin, the Atlantic Slave Trade was really negative on the lives of Africans. Before the invasion of Europeans, Africa had thousands of languages and their names all meant something.

As a result of that the African continent was deprived of some of its healthiest women and men. African-American slaves helped build the economic foundations of the new nation as well during that time. Early in the 17th century European settlers turned to African slaves for a plentiful labor because they were cheaper.
