Sullivan Island (near the port in Charleston, SC) was a "Main Entry Point" for an estimated 40% of Africans who survived the "Middle Passage," the month-long segments of the TransAtlantic Triangular (Enslavement) Trade's inhumane transport of men and women in overpacked hulls of ships from African countries to North America and South America to provide forced labor in British colonies.

BACKGROUND

In August 1619, a group of twenty or more Africans on board a trading ship were sold for supplies to the British colonists in Point- Comfort, VA, a British Colony in North America (NA). Their status as enslaved or indentured servants is still debated. However, this event is historically noted as the start of the TransAtlantic Triangular (Enslavement) Trade (TTET) in North America by the British and would lead into the United States of America's (USA) involvement upon its independence from Britain in 1776. In 2019, the 400 year milestone will occur for this significant period of racial oppression in human history.
