First African Slaves Arrive In Jamestown On This Day In 1619

A Dutch ship carrying 20 Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, on Aug. 20, 1619, a voyage that would mark the beginning of slavery in the American colonies. The number of slaves continued to grow between the 17th and 18th centuries, as slave labor was used to help fuel the growing tobacco and cotton industries in the southern states. 
In fact, African slaves may have been present in England’s North American colonies earlier than 1619, but Rolfe’s letter is the earliest hard evidence of the presence of slaves.

395 years ago Africans were put on this road of murderous oppression and we’re still fighting everyday to be seen and treated like human beings and not cattle.

Black men never cease to disappoint me

OH MY GOD

this is just so weird since her facial features aren’t like unconventional? she like literally looks like a prefect doll? I’m so confused these niggas need help. 

I was actually going to call her gorgeous, so yeah.

people should realize that this is not a black man but a black boy who is not mature enough to appreciate the fact that God created many different beautiful shades of black women.
