How to End the Slavery Blame-Game By HENRY LOUIS GATES Jr. APRIL 22, 2010 How did #slaves make it to these coastal forts? The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were #enslaved by #Africans and then sold to #European traders. The sad truth is that without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the #NewWorld would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred.

During the decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone, rebels would cut off the arms and legs of civilians as a scare tactic, leaving behind thousands of war amputees. After the war, 2015 National Geographic Emerging Explorer David Moinina Sengeh, who was born and raised in Sierra Leone, became involved in helping these amputees. They were given prosthetics to wear, but most chose not to wear them because they were so uncomfortable.
Mae Azango gave birth to her first child during the war, at the age of 18. Forced to use a traditional #midwife, #Azango stated that the superstitious midwife beat her during the #birth and accused her of being an #adulteress. Azango later became a #refugee. Azango is best known for her reporting on #FGM, a traditional practice in which the #clitoris and part of the #labia are amputated, often in unsanitary conditions, by members of the secret Sande society. An estimated 58% of #Liberianwomen went through some form of the procedure. Azango wrote her first story on the topic in 2010. Explaining her choice to write on the taboo topic, she stated, A lot of people don't have a voice. If I don't write about it, how will people know about it? On 8 March 2012—International Women's Day—she published a story in Front Page Africa telling of a woman who was held down by five other #women while her clitoris was amputated. The story detailed the procedure, which the #Sande consider secret. The paper received so many threats the day that the story appeared that Azango's editor, #WadeWilliams, called to tell her to go into hiding. The threats included that Azango herself would be caught and cut. After local police failed to take action against the threats, Azango went into hiding, sending her nine-year-old daughter to stay with relatives. Source: Wikipedia

“What white people have to do is try and find out in their own hearts why it was necessary to have a nigger in the first place, because I'm not a nigger,” he #JamesBaldwin said. “I'm a man, but if you think I'm a nigger, it means you need it… If I'm not a nigger and you invented him -- you, the white people, invented him -- then you've got to find out why. And the future of the country depends on that, whether or not it's able to ask that question.” But: Tre'vell AndersonContact Reporter #Iamnotyournegro
