Indeed, the « Black friday » was the day when blacks / Africans were displayed in public places to be sold at very low prices. Buyers came in large numbers to buy as many slaves as possible to work on their plantations and also as servants in their homes.
Our ancestors were paid at the « Black friday » The slave masters thus came to “liquidate” the slaves that remained to them before going to Africa to capture new Black / African slaves. Yes, we were on sale as are the items at « Zara, Darty, HM, Etc ... » It is up to us to explain our story to our children so that they know the truth otherwise no one else will do it for us.
