It was other Africans as you suggest. They sold people that were outcasts, prisoners that committed crimes, prisoners from other tribes, etc. This was common.
Bad black people sold some black people to bad white men who enslaved them and treated them like crap for a long time. Some whites conquered and stole black people as well. This has been done by every color of skin throughout history. We all have bad and good ancestors.
Brave and good white people united with brave and good black people to stop slavery. Whites, blacks, and other races marched and demanded civil rights.
Unfortunately, without white people to help the slaves black people would still be in the same predicament today. There were way more white people. Without good white people black people wouldn't be allowed to vote and their wouldn't be a black president. Black people make up only 12.4% of society. White people had to vote for a black man for president just as they had to fight to change laws that discriminated against blacks.
I've never heard of Africans coming from Africa to fight and get back and free black people.
The bottom line is that good people fought together to end all of this embarrassment to humanity.
