If you been learning about slavery in American history over the past several years. Then back then America was not the only country to have slavery. In Cape Town during colonialism in Africa, then they too had slavery too! Not kidding and not a joke! But seriously folks, you should try to know slavery in Cape Town and the person who tried to fight for freedom too. In slave ship mutiny you will learn slave trade in Africa and why that America isn't the only country to had slave ships and freedom. If you want to learn about the slaves besides in America go learn it from Cape Town. Try it and see for yourself.
