I used pictures to tell the story of a slave

One June day in 1837, Baaba Djibo's life changed dramatically.
He has lived in the west coast of Africa until he was captured with many men who came from his country. Once, their wrists and their ankles were tied forcibly, they were put in the boat in the place of the luggage. Actually, they were no longer considered as human beings. As a matter of fact, the traval has not beggun yet that /than African men were exhausted as tough, they (have) summoned up all their forces in order to get away from their ennemies, in vain. Despite of they were reducing to slavery, I wonder wether they were realizing that they could not see again their family. Furthermore, two white chiefs were standing right in the middle of the boat, while two members of the crew were casting off. The chiefs had a quiet attitude, they were sat idly by on the moment, nevertheless, they had responsabilities more serious as « exporting the cargo » to an other continent.
At least durind a few months, the boat crossed the Atlantic Ocean, as a result, many of them died because of epidemics or hunger.

Afterward, when they arrived, they had to work in cotton or sugar plantation. Concerning the climate, it is similar to Africa that's why we could deduce that Baaba Djibo was in the east coast of America so the boat berthed probably in New Orlean. Besides, from morning till night Baaba worked up to be tired with men, women and children. All together they were shackled, either they had around their necks a yoke or they carried a bundle. Even if, they were chained upand weakened, they were kept watch over by the overseers: willing to whip the disobedients slaves. All the same, Baaba Djibo rebelled against his owners: he escaped from their. Hidding in the streams, he was trying to avoid tracking down by the bounty hunter. Moreover, the owner was not all the time the same, in fact, the owner put an advertisement and the slaves were sold at auction.
In a way, the auction was like Wall Street the Stock Exchange: prices varied according to supply and demand, the market was saturated and sometimes prices drop.

I know it's late, 1:30 a.m in Paris so I'm really sorry
