First African Slaves Arrive In Jamestown On This Day In 1619

A Dutch ship carrying 20 Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, on Aug. 20, 1619, a voyage that would mark the beginning of slavery in the American colonies. The number of slaves continued to grow between the 17th and 18th centuries, as slave labor was used to help fuel the growing tobacco and cotton industries in the southern states. 
In fact, African slaves may have been present in England’s North American colonies earlier than 1619, but Rolfe’s letter is the earliest hard evidence of the presence of slaves.

395 years ago Africans were put on this road of murderous oppression and we’re still fighting everyday to be seen and treated like human beings and not cattle.

No words. She was also with Talib who was told by police to keep his hands up or they’ll blow his brains out. And some resident protestors are exhausted with everything and saying that street medics told them they’re experiencing a subcategory of PTSD.

So.

Yeah.

I’m weary.

That’s how much the price of college in America has increased over the past 4 decades

That is not a typo.
