The Middle Passage

 Name given by English to passage of slave ships across Atlantic Ocean

Slaves were chained together and packed like sardines below deck

Some resisted but only a few escaped; some jumped overboard

10 to 20% on board died during voyage of disease or mistreatment

Lasted 400 years; 2-3 million Africans died
