Therefore, they payed Africans to steal other Africans and bring them to a place like Goree Island, which was free of mosquitoes and malaria. African slaves were won through wars too. Goree Island had slave houses.    hip and leave Africa. Notes by Angela Dela Llana The ones in charge of transporting slaves had to figure out how to do so efficiently in order to n.
