Commemorate African Ancestors of the Middle Passage was formed in 2015 to organize activities that are designed to remember the millions of Africans who were sold, kidnapped, shipped then died along the route from Africa to the Americas. ICCAAMP also honors and commemorates those who survived the transatlantic trafficking in African people known by the Swahili term Maafa, or Black Holocaust or Middle Passage.
Previously, ICCAAMP has proclaimed every second weekend in June (beginning in 2016) as the international commemoration to Remember the Ancestors of the Middle Passage – the Maafa, with simultaneous activities hosted by ICCAAMP member communities across the United States and internationally.
