The Transatlantic Slave Trade killed millions of African people. Men, women, and children were kidnapped and taken in chains to the Americas to create wealth for Europeans. For over two centuries, enslaved black people in the United States were bartered, sold, abused exploited, tortured, and confined in involuntary servitude. An ideology of white supremacy allowed courts and political leaders to justify the enslavement of black people even though the Constitution required liberty and justice for all. In the 19th century, the Domestic Slave Trade brought over a million enslaved black people to the American South. After emancipation, more than 90 percent of all African Americans in the United States lived in the South.
