Tekrema MAAFA Commemoration Community PANEL

The MAAFA is a Kiswahili term for «terrible occurrence» or «great disaster». It refers to the Black Holocaust when millions of Africans died during the journey of captivity from the west coast of Africa to the shores of America, known as the Middle Passage.

Given our relationship to America and how that relationship shapes our today, this question has particular historical context. In an effort to continue the restoration of our humanity, True Love Movement has organized a courageous panel of well qualified brothers to serve as intentional guides for those of us embarking on our communal healing journey.
