The African Ancestors Memorial Foundation plans to re-enact "The Middle Passage” voyage, from Cape Coast Ghana to Jamestown, Virginia in the year 2016 to memorialize our ancestors who suffered horrific deaths in the middle passage.
A monumental size rock will be sourced and sculpted in Ghana to serve as a physical memorial in remembrance of our ancestors. During the crossing, fragments from the sculpture will be cast into the sea by an African spiritual leader offering prayers and rituals in a ceremonious and symbolic “burial”, finally putting these long forgotten souls to rest.
On the ships arrival in the United States the monument will be erected in a prominent and well visited location. Under discussion is the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington D.C. scheduled to open in 2016.
We invite you to join us in this long overdue remembrance, with your generous donation and support for the African Ancestors Memorial Foundation.
Thank you sincerely,
Joe Anutoshen Duckett
