Abstract (2. Language): 
The transatlantic African slave trade spanned over four centuries, and stands as arguably the most horrific event in record-ed human history. Not as often discussed in the slavery conversa-tion, however, are the realities of religious oppression Africans faced during this era. This article discusses the religious oppression Africans faced as slavery was imposed upon them pre-1776, the freedoms – or lack thereof – afforded to them under the Bill of Rights, and the effects of that religious oppression on successive generations leading up to and beyond the Civil War. The article describes how a deprivation of religious freedom, and not slavery alone, has stifled Black Americans from achieving their full poten-tial.
