End of Enslavement
This was the first Pyramid of Love.
On 8th Aug 2020, a group of friends, family and I came together to honour all the people who contributed to ending the enslavement of Africans. We aimed to challenge the common narrative in Britain where the oppressors became the saviours, virtually overnight. A narrative which is debilitating to the descendants of the oppressors and the descendants of the enslaved.
It was a beautiful day. We give thanks to Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London for removing the statue of the Slave Trader Robert Milligan outside the museum of London to make way for our tribute. On the day we prayed, we sang, we danced and we created a tribute to the Haitian ancestors Adbaraya Toya, Toussaint Louverture. We also honoured Queen Nzinga, Nanny of the Maroons, Nat Turner, William Wilberforce and all the people who resisted enslavement.
