Our memorial was birthed from the idea that the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was being overshadowed in history. After much research, we wanted the memorial to represent the women of all ages. The memorial's location in this park in Charleston, SC, was chosen because during the western slave trade, the majority of enslaved Africans were deported to the ports of Charleston, SC. Moreover, Americans associate Charleston as a major port of entry for African slaves.
