Triangular Trade was a form part of a three-legged trade network. On the first leg, merchant ships bought good to Africa to be traded for slaves. On the second leg (Middle Passage) the slaves were transported to the West Indies. On the final leg, these products were shipped to Europe or European colonies in the Americas.

“Cash Crop” — an evocative work of cement, fabric, steel and wood that compels viewers to imagine themselves squeezed into the hull of slave ship. It features 15 life-size sculptures of human beings in shackles representing the 15 million human beings kidnapped and transported by sea during the trans-Atlantic slave trade —people were not considered people; they were considered a good or commodity — ['Cash Crop' on display at the African American Museum in Philadelphia 2014]
