It astounds me that so few people know about the white, Irish slave trade.
"From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade."
200 years of humans harvested for the British Empire, and the inspiration for my story, White Gold. They should be remembered.
