Where all slaves from Africa?

In early America, mostly. In the world, absolutely not. Our word "slave" comes from the world "slav," a European (white) people who were apparently taken as slaves a lot back in the day. Slaves could also be captured enemy soldiers of any nation, especially in the ancient world, when slavery was extremely common. Later on, kidnapping African tribesmen became the most profitable form of slavery.
