Throughout history man has endeavored on a mission to conquer and gain additional wealth Powerful kingdoms throughout time have explored the unfamiliar parts of the globe to seek out new markets whereas it might be beneficial to their economy One such trend began in the fifteenth century with global exploration This quickly evolved into Imperialism in the sixteenth century and has continued even until today One byproduct of global exploration and Imperialism was the large-scale slave trade The principle of slavery has existed since the beginnings of civilization yet during this period it became a global source of commerce The powers of Europe and the Middle East rushed into their respective acquisitions and took their inhabitants and put them to work all in the name of profit One region that became the foreground for slavery was the continent of Africa Literally Africa became a battleground for countries competing in slave trade Africa as a collection of peoples and a series of cultures collapsed under the external pressure that slavery brought to the region Africas own people would turn on themselves taking sides to preserve their culture and gain supremacy over their enemies Such examples of this violence and chaos are shown through Marcia Wrights account of two specific slaves in the nineteenth century Msatulwa Mwachiete and Chisi Ndjurisiye-Sichyajunga Yet these two examples not only discuss the general topic of slavery they detail something more specific This detail encompasses how gender played a role in slavery Although slavery as an institution was rigid and not considerably dynamic their experiences differ slightly In comparing the two figures the similarities that surface include integration into slavery the continuous movement between regions and how they each adopted the Christian faith In contrast though Msatulwa and Chisi differ in how they were used as labor strategies for survival and their potential for marriage Thus Marcia Wrights analysis of the two slave figures shows how men and women endured the hardships
