Planking??
If you think “planking” is cool. Think again! Slaves captured in Africa  were stowed away on ships during the “Middle Passage” journey during the  late 16th century and forced to sleep on wooden planks. “Planking” was  the term used when slave owners transported the slaves on these ships.  Unclothed, underfed, and forced to lie on hard planking in unhygienic  conditions, many slaves failed to survive the transatlantic voyage.  Cultural sensitivity is real. Educate yourself.
