Did you know that no Black African manned crew has sailed the original routes the slaves traveled from West Africa to Europe & the Americas?
The Atlantic slave trade took place across the Atlantic Ocean from the 16th through to the 19th centuries. The vast majority of those enslaved that were transported to the New World were West Africans from the central and western parts of the continent sold by West Africans to Western European slave traders, or by direct European capture to the Americas.
This little known fact has brought forth an amazing challenge that will help save the coasts of Ghana and give hope for the prosperity of Africa. Team Ghana will sail 24,000 nautical miles around the world to be the first African based crew to complete this route.
