This is the shore that Kunta Kinte arrived on via the slave ship Lord Ligonier in 1767. Can you imagine? I stood there and looked at the bay and thought about my ancestors who after undergoing the unimaginable physical and emotional trauma of being snatched away from their homes, mothers, and children were taken as prisoners on a ship with unlivable conditions for weeks and weeks. Those Africans that miraculously survived the revolting, inhumane circumstances of this journey arrived to the shores of Annapolis, MD where their nightmares continued and worsened as they were again separated and sold into the ownership of wicked men and women. Those are the same waters, this is the same land. This is our our history. Never forget.
