BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : WHAT ROLE DID THE AFRICANS HAVE IN THE SLAVE TRADE :
Warring tribes would often capture members of other tribes as slaves and then sell them on to African Slave Traders who take them to the ports here they would sell them to European Slavers. Some African tribes did well out of the slave trade, they were particularly enriched by the slave trade, the Ashanti of the Gold Coast now Ghana. European slave traders were very careful to stay on very good terms with the African slave traders who brought them slaves, they depended on there co-operation to keep the trade going. Some European slave traders married African wives who kept the business going in the absence of there husbands.
