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 encouragement, there has been progress made at 3 more arrival locations -- Boston, MA (marker installed October 2020); Pensacola, FL (marker fabricated and scheduled to be installed in 2021); Perth Amboy, NJ (marker installation on schedule for 2021).

The UNESCO Slave Route Project has designated forty-two of these fifty-two locations as a “Site of Memory” acknowledging their international relevance and status.
