Untitled Image (African Merchant Selling Slaves to a European)

Description

Aguet did not provide a comprehensive bibliography in her book or provide titles of the images. The caption she wrote about this image explained how "The defenders of the slave trade argued that African kings themselves were only too willing to sell their Negro subjects to white men. However, without buyers, there would have been no sellers."
