sounds like. It is and auction where a slave gets
bought or where slaves get traded. Slave auctions
were the main reason of splitting up a slave
family. Many slaves would try to run away with
their families so they wouldn’t be split apart.
Slave auctions is a big part in the story A Day of
Tears. There is two different kinds of slave
auctions. One is called “grab and go” is where a
slave buyer would give the slave trader a certain
amount of money and he would get a ticket in
return for the slave. The other kind of slave
auctions is called “may the biggest bidder win”
which is where a slave buyer bids the highest
amount of money possible and whoever manages
to bid the highest gets the slave.
