    Africa's history is littered with slave ownership, slave trading and slavery.
    Although slavery was practiced for thousands of years, within four hundred years 15,000,000 Africans were exported as slaves mostly to the Americas, Middle East and North Africa.
    3,500 years ago, Jews were enslaved in Egypt (circa 1500 BC).
    African imperialists kept and traded slaves including the Asanti, the Kings of Bonny and Dahomey.
    King Gezo on Dahomey said: 'The slave trade is the ruling principle of my people. It is the source and the glory of their wealth…the mother lulls the child to sleep with notes of triumph over an enemy reduced to slavery (1840's).'
    Babatu, was famed as a Muslim slave trader, was born in Niger and conducted slave raids in Northern Ghana in the 1880's.
    The king of Bonny (of what is now Nigeria) refused to accept Britain's declaration making slavery illegal in 1807.
    He said: 'We think this trade must go on. That is the verdict of our oracle and the priests. They say that your country, however great, can never stop a trade ordained by God himself.'
    The poorest countries in the world are on Africa.
    Africa suffers more famine and disease than any other continent.
    The land was raped and colonized by Europeans.
