    To the waters of Sullivan's Island close to the location of the Pest Houses where enslaved Africans were first lodged for 10 days upon their arrival in South Carolina.

    REMEMBRANCE 2014

    At 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014 The Charleston Remembrance Committee will conduct The 17th Annual Charleston Middle Passage REMEMBRANCE Program, paying homage and tribute to the millions of Africans who perished in the Middle Passage.

    The Middle Passage refers to the part of the African Holocaust during which captive Africans were crammed into the cargo holds of ships like livestock, bound for chattel slavery in the Americas. These living, breathing men, women and children who had families, hopes, dreams and aspirations, were stripped of any sense of humanity. Historians estimate that 10 - 20 million Africans died from disease, starvation, suicide and murder during this torturous voyage. Indeed, author and historian, Dr. John Henrik Clarke proclaimed, “If the Atlantic were to dry up, it would reveal a scattered pathway of human bones, African bones marking the various routes of the Middle Passage.”

    Saturday, June 14, 2014, the public is invited to Fort Moultrie on Sullivan’s Island for the 17th annual memorial and healing rite in Charleston, SC. Similar programs will take place simultaneously at numerous ports around the world, including New York, California, Washington, Virginia, Panama, The Virgin Islands, Brazil, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Ghana. Remembrance programs are held on the Atlantic coast or near another body of water. Charleston is an important historical location for this tribute as it was the port of entry for 40 to 60 percent of enslaved Africans arriving to America’s shores as human cargo.

    We ask those attending to meet in the auditorium of the Fort Moultrie Visitor’s Center promptly at 9:00 a.m. The program will begin with a viewing of The Language You Cry In, the one-hour documentary which “links Africa and America, past and present, in a compelling story that helps us to examine violence and redemption, then and now” (Peter Wood, author of Black Majority). The presentation will be followed by a drum-led procession to the beach, African dancing, and prayers. Clergy of all denominations and the lay public are invited to attend and participate. Libations will be poured at 12:00 noon SHARP, coinciding with those being poured at ports worldwide. The ceremony will conclude with a drum circle. Attendees are encouraged to wear white or African attire and bring flowers and fruit in remembrance of those who perished during the Middle Passage.
