How many Africans were taken to the United States during the entire history of the slave trade?

MORE FACTS THE SOCIALIST MEDIA AND THE PROGRESSIVES WILL NOT TELL YOU ABOUT THE SLAVE TRADE


Amazing Fact About the Negros brought to America. How many Africans were taken to the United States during the entire history of the slave trade?

The most comprehensive analysis of shipping records over the course of the slave trade is the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, edited by professors David Eltis and David Richardson. (While the editors are careful to say that all of their figures are estimates, I believe that they are the best estimates that we have, the proverbial "gold standard" in the field of the study of the slave trade.) Between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 million survived the dreaded Middle Passage, disembarking in North America, the Caribbean and South America.

And how many of these 10.7 million Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That's right: a tiny percentage.

In fact, the overwhelming percentage of the African slaves were shipped directly to the Caribbean and South America; Brazil received 4.86 million Africans alone! Some scholars estimate that another 60,000 to 70,000 Africans ended up in the United States after touching down in the Caribbean first, so that would bring the total to approximately 450,000 Africans who arrived in the United States over the course of the slave trade.

THATS RIGHTS.... 450,000 Africans were brought to the United States over the course of the slave trade between 1525 and 1866.
Here is a site to track the slave trade.
