Brief History – Slaves that were taken by the Arabs from central and eastern portions of the continent then sold them into markets in the Middle East the Indian Subcontinent and the Far East. Then the Europeans (Caucasians) captured or bought African Slaves from West Africa and brought them to the Americas and Europe to help build the countries they were taken to.
The dispersion through slave trading represents the largest forced migrations in Human History!
Many communities that were built with the help of descendants of Black African Slaves in the Americas, Europe and Asia have survived to the modern day. In other cases, blacks intermarried with non-blacks and their descendants are blended into the local population
KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING of Original Black African Heritage & Ancestry, the better relationships, understanding and above all SOCIAL COHESION with other groups can be.
