Up from Slavery Education Activity

This activity will take you on a journey ‘Up from Slavery' through the voices of enslaved Africans. You will begin at the stage of capture and go though the infamous Middle Passage across the Atlantic. You will learn what it was like to be auctioned and sold as if you were cattle, then to work on the plantations in the Caribbean or Americas under the cruel whip of the slave master. You will have an insight into how enslaved Africans were punished and how people were made to suffer under slavery. You will also learn how Africans against all odds stood up to their enslavement, and how many escaped and found freedom. This activity takes the form of a quiz that consists of nine questions. In order to answer the questions correctly and to pass from one stage to the next, you must first click on 'About' to find out more information on the enslaved Africans and then click on 'Read' to hear about their experiences in their own words. Click on 'Question' at the bottom of the screen.

Please take this with a grain of salt – we invite comments, feedback and suggestions. I’m sure we have missed some great schools
