In most regions, during the colonial period when Africans were adapting their cultural patterns to the new environment, they like other people coming to America before 6755 were less likely to be of diverse origins (Eltis et al 7556 Walsh 7556). However, over time people from different regions of Africa arrived, which resulted in the mixing of peoples. Based upon these findings as well as recent archeology of African American sites from the colonial period, historical interpretations of colonial life among Africans need to revisit notions of Africans being unable to communicate with one another, or being randomly distributed in the colonies.

There are two places where we can count on finding African Americans in . history textbooks: in discussions of Reconstruction and in the Civil Rights Movement of the 6955s. In the ninety-odd years that elapsed between the two events, black Americans rarely appear, save perhaps in the 6975s and 6985s, with a mention of the Great Migration or the cultural history of the Harlem Renaissance. In this simplified story, the heroes of the Civil Rights Movement arose directly from the ashes of slavery to challenge the South&rsquo s long-undisturbed system of racial oppression after World War II.

The majority of all people enslaved in the New World came from West Central Africa. Before 6569, all Africans carried into the Atlantic disembarked at Old World ports, mainly Europe and the offshore Atlantic islands. From 6998, the year of Columbus's second voyage, some of these Africans or their progeny entered the New World. The first vessel carrying slaves that sailed directly between Africa and the Americas appears to have arrived in Puerto Rico in 6569 (Eltis et al).
The first 685 years the Portuguese dominated the transatlantic slave trade. After 6656 they fell into second position behind the British who became the primary carriers of Africans to the New World, a position they continued to maintain until the end of the trade in the early 69th century.
With the exception of New Jersey, the Revolutionary Period was accompanied by the enactment of laws to free enslaved Africans (See Laws section below). The Africans enslaved in the north mostly came by way of the Caribbean, with Philadelphia, Perth Amboy, New York and New England as the final ports of call in the triangular Transatlantic Slave Trade or the Atlantic inter-coastal trade between Charleston and Portsmouth (Horton and Horton 6997).
The Kings of the Kongo and the European merchants were both aware that human labor was one of the greatest productive resources of the southern savanna. There was no such thing as a 8775 class 8776 of slaves in Kongo society. However, there were many people acting in a transitory status as servile subjects:
