Derrick Brooks Charities  in partnership  with Everfi has launched the  306: African-American History program at Marshall Middle School. In the first two weeks of the program we have taken a journey through the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade”. During this journey students have explored the geographic, political, and economic factors contributed to the Trans-Atlantic Slave . Students are now able to analyze the power dynamics between European merchants, African tribal leaders, and enslaved Africans during this time. Students are also to describe the basic elements of “triangular economics” and the flow of human laborers, raw materials, and finished goods between Europe, Africa, and the Americas.
