The Atlanta Black Star, a has put together a very impressive short but succinct video narrative of the Arab slavery of Africans. In honesty, it’s rarely you see this level of historic fact in black reporting. Good for them.

And the biggest suffering came under Islam. The temptation for wealth brought Muslim slavery to the Atlantic. Unlike historic slavery around the world, Islam never stopped and continues to enslave millions of people around the world.
