The people of the colonies needed slaves. As farmers began to use fewer indentured servants, slaves became very valuable. People were willing to pay a lot for labor. As slaves became popular, the slave trade grew. The slave trade brought millions of Africans across the Atlantic ocean in a voyage called the Middle Passage. This affected conditions on the Middle Pasage because people were willing to pay a lot of money for labor.
