about

The Middle Passage is one of the most horrific chapters of all times and has so rightfully been addressed as the African holocaust. Millions died during this passage of hell and their remains were scattered in the watery graves which eventually came to mark their final resting places. The Middle Passage is also a time that reflects on the shocking ability of man to sustain cruelty and slavery to such immense proportions on a ship not geared for a comfortable journey to the New World. In Part 2, Adaku finds life on a slave ship strenuous and while the good times are so few, Adaku meets people she grows to love including those from neighboring tribes she was always told to be cautious about. In the end, across the weeks, she finds company with many women beginning with Akanke and finally ending with Yaa, a woman so stoic about her own destiny to a new land she would confront on her own terms. All the women in this story come with the way the world has told them to be, but all walk knowing their allegiance and love is to the other.
Part 2 on the Middle Passage promises an inspiring journey that dwells on friendship and love, of hardships and terror, of betrayals and loyalties, all forged amidst the roar of slavery on the harsh Atlantic seas.
