About Neil A. Frankel
Dr. Neil A. Frankel earned a BChE from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, an MS from Northwestern University, and a PhD from Stanford University. He worked on the design of the Apollo SPS rocket engine the year that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and in research and development for Sun Oil Company and for Xerox Corporation. His inventions have led to a number of issued and pending patents relating to printing technologies. In his free time, he enjoys reading and writing fiction and historical non fiction, playing tennis, and gardening. He is married to Sandra L. Frankel, Supervisor of the Town of Brighton, New York and a former candidate for Lieutenant Governor of New York State [http://www.sandrafrankel.com].
For many years, Dr. Frankel has been deeply interested in slavery in North America and the Atlantic slave trade. This led him to create www.slaverysite.com, a non-commercial resource for the benefit of students, teachers, scholars and individuals. He has always found it to be inconceivable that something as repugnant and immoral as slavery and the Atlantic slave trade could have been practiced for over 400 years by civilized and God fearing western European nations, and yet there is ample evidence that it did occur. Compare this with another horrific event in history, the holocaust during the Nazi era, also unbelievable and unthinkable and yet it, too, happened. Out of the holocaust came the expression, often repeated by Jews in Israel, 'never again.' Let the world remember the horrors of slavery and the slave trade, and vow that this too will never again be tolerated anywhere in the world.
