During the history of slavery , there were many different forms of human exploitation across many cultures . Slavery is a condition in which people are owned or completely controlled by other people. [1] Buying and selling slaves is a trade as old as many of the oldest civilizations . A modern form of the slave trade is called human trafficking .

Slaves were often sold at markets and auctions . Slave auctions show that slaves were not thought of as human beings with human rights . Instead, they were thought of as property , which could be bought or sold. Slaves that were for sale were often advertised in the newspapers, like today's newspapers advertise cars or houses. [10] Slave traders were even listed in public directories (like today's phone books). [11] p.96

Slaves did not have any say in what happened to them. Many times, families were split up and sold to different owners for different amounts of money . Millions of families became separated this way and never saw each other again. [12] [13]
