MAAFA QUESTIONNAIRE 2020
For twenty-five years St. Paul Community has been a dedicated educational outpost of the horrors of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. The MAAFA, a Kiswahili word coined in 1994 by Marimba Ani (in Let the Circle Be Unbroken: The Implications of African Spirituality in the Diaspora) translates to disaster, catastrophe. Slavery is the holocaust of Africans and Black American history as millions of Africans died during the journey of captivity from the west coast of Africa to the shores of America.
