Slavery Has No Color and Has Always Been In Humanity Since It’s Begnings



Episode  The White Slave Trade of Africa


In this episode we look at the white slave trade in Africa, where Barbary Pirates kidnapped Europeans and sold them into slavery, attacking shipping as well as infiltrating coastal villages and islands. The episode looks at the extent this problem had on Europe and America between the 16th-19th Century.

Economic History: The Viking Slave Trade

Pillage and plundering have long been associated with the Vikings, however, the Vikings were also skilled slave traders. Watch this short documentary on the Viking Slave trade. The Vikings would enslave the local population of settlements they raided and demanded slave tributes from Finnish and Slavic communities. These slaves would than be sold to the southern Islamic world via the Russian water ways. The Viking slaves would also be purchased by intermediaries, such as the Volga Bulgars and the Khazars at vibrant markets alongside the Volga river.
