Sierra Leone Descendants

On April 23, 2019, marked a special return of Sierra Leone Descendants from across the United States who came home to Sierra Leone. This group celebrated the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and the wish for descendants to one day to fulfill their ancestors dreams of returning home to Sierra Leone, also known as Salone.

Bunce Island was one of about 40 slave castles, or fortified trading posts, that European merchants built along the coast of West Africa during the period of the Atlantic slave trade. Slave traders based at the castles purchased African captives, imprisoned them, and loaded them aboard the slave ships that took them on the infamous middle passage to America. Slave castles have been called “warehouses of humanity.”
