According to a legal Practitioner, Kelvins Dzeremo, during the slave trade in the 17th century, a day was designated, as a tradition in America, in which slaves were to be sold. This day was usually the Friday after thanksgiving (known as Giving Tuesday) in November. On this Friday, Black slaves, mostly of African origin, were sold at a discount.

In 1834 for instance, black slaves were sold at a discounted price ranging from $200 – $800 depending on the age, sex, agility and health status of the slave. It was necessary to do these sales on Friday so as to meet with obligation of tax returns the following week after thanksgiving. With little time to raise money, the slaves had to be traded off at a discount.

Following the abolition of the slave trade, merchants needed to keep up with the tradition and maintain a “discount day” for sales. The name Black Friday, already made famous, was maintained.
