The Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project is marking its 10th anniversary this month. The Project is committed to commemorating the lives of the two million captive Africans who perished during the Trans-Atlantic human trade. We also honor the ten million children, women, and men who survived and whose unpaid labor built the Americas. From August 21st-23rd, we will observe this milestone and share it with our supporters with a three-day virtual program that highlights our work and our achievements over the years.

As part of this commemoration, we are asking everyone to take this pledge as a personal commitment to honor ancestors:

A Pledge of Remembrance: I pledge to remember and honor those who came before me. I will cherish their lives, their sacrifices, and the lessons I have learned. I will practice the values transmitted to me from my ancestors and my community to the best of my ability in order to sustain our humanity today and create a better world for future generations
