  • To what degree was the Atlantic Slave trade an extension of the existing trade, and how was it modified? What were the chief effects of the Atlantic slave trade in African societies?

  • What were the relative effects of Christianity and Islam on the slave trade and slavery? How does that affect cross-cultural religious workers today?
