In what ways did slavery in the Americas differ from slavery in Africa, ancient Greece and Rome, or in other places and times?
Slavery in the Americas differed from slavery in other places at the time. In America, slaves were a different race than their masters. They were usually African American or had dark skin. Slaves in America were considered property of their masters and could be sold to other people. In other places, slave were the same race as their masters and weren't considered property. Slaves were bonded with the land instead. A master couldn't sell slaves since the slaves had to stay with the land they worked on. A similarity between slavery in America and slavery in other places is that people were forced to work against their will and were enslaved. Another similarity is that slaves weren't given many rights and were in a low social class.
