Remembering Ancestors

We Are Remembering Ancestors

The Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project (MPCPMP) needs your financial help to continue working with local communities in the U.S. on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts to commemorate African ancestors and to install Middle Passage history markers.

As a result of our on-going efforts and your encouragement, there has been progress made at numerous arrival locations. In 2022 we expect marker installations at: Africatown, AL; Annapolis, MD; Charleston, SC; Oxford, MD; Tybee Island, GA. Planning has begun for Biloxi, MS; New Bern, NC; New London, CT.

The UNESCO Slave Route Project has designated 43 of 55 documented U.S. Middle Passage arrival locations as a “Site of Memory,” acknowledging their international relevance and status.
