"In 1619 twenty Africans were brought to the English colony of Jamestown, Virginia. From then on, people of Sub-Saharan Africa, kidnapped and sold into slavery by Arabs and other black Africans (sometimes as a result of inter-tribal warfare), were brought to the United States involuntarily by slave traders from many European nations as well as the United States from 1619 through 1806 until the trade was delcared illegal."
