i have a chart labled 'African-American Population, 1690-1750'. it shows the year, new england colonies, middle colonies, and southern colonies.
the question is: In which group of colonies did the number of African Americans increase most sharply?
well the answer is obvious to me: Southern Colonies...but then it also says, add to your answer your ideas behind this..i don't really know what factors caused this sharp increase...please help!

    I have no idea if this is right, but i think that it's because they were still having children, and the demand for African-American slaves were high-so people began to ship in more and more Africans to America to be sold into slavery.
