WHERE IS OUR ANCESTRAL LAND! The vast majority of those who were enslaved and transported in the transatlantic slave trade were people from Nubia, Kemet (Arab Slave trade) Central and West Africa, who had been sold by other West Africans to Western European slave traders (with a small number being captured directly by the slave traders in coastal raids), who brought them to the Americas. The major Atlantic slave trading nations, ordered by trade volume, were the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Spanish, the Dutch Empires, and the Danish, along with an occasional Norwegian. Several had established outposts on the African coast where they purchased slaves from local African leaders. These slaves were managed by a factory, who was established on or near the coast to expedite the shipping of slaves to the New World. Slaves were imprisoned in a factory while awaiting shipment. With that said, we are seeking political assistance from African Nations for our return and resettlement initiatives.
