The "Brick Negrier" was a type of ship used in the transatlantic slave trade during the 18th and 19th centuries. It was a small, fast, and heavily armed vessel that was designed to transport enslaved Africans across the Atlantic Ocean from West Africa to the Americas.
The term "brick" referred to the method of construction used to build the ship, which involved overlapping planks of wood, rather than using ribs and planking. This made the ships stronger and more durable, and therefore ideal for long voyages across the Atlantic.
The "Brick Negrier" was notorious for its role in the transatlantic slave trade, as it was often used to transport enslaved Africans in brutal conditions. The ships were often overcrowded, with little ventilation, food, or water, and many enslaved people died from disease, malnutrition, and mistreatment.
The use of the "Brick Negrier" declined in the mid-19th century, as the transatlantic slave trade was gradually abolished. However, the legacy of this type of ship and its role in the slave trade remains a dark chapter in human history.
