International Day for the Remembrance of the Transatlantic Slave Trade & Its Abolition: August 23rd

enslaved Africans kept at this holding dungeon were taken through this door, loaded to ships and taken across the Atlantic never to see home again

Lest we forget:

Retraced ancestral path

Standing in the “door of no return”

The beauty of the vista before me obliterated

I see instead anguish of fore-parents

Shackled, stolen into slavery
