Blacks, in the United States and Other countries in the Americas, are called Afro-Americans. Their roots are found in Africa. The focal point of this unit will show how white Europeans forced or tried to force their values on Blacks. Due to the fact that Blacks were taken from their native land at an early age, the African continent grew weaker and eventually a large part of the continent fell under foreign control. In addition to this, Blacks lost contact with their immediate family causing an astronomical and sad gap in their families.
