The Immortal Age of the Black Renaissance
12.5 million humans were shipped to the Colonized World.
10.7 million of those people survived the dreaded Passage of Death. Those 1.8 Million souls lost to the sea have my heart.
We landed in the Americas & Caribbean.
For 373 years (est. 20 generations) those humans were enslaved into free labor, human bondage/slavery, sex trafficking, physical abuse of children/women/men, forced removal from family, etc.
