Mama Africa has shed torrential tears of sorrow for the millions she lost in the European slave trade to Africa. She has never forgotten the chaos, the degradation and the stigma, without any doubt, the most vicious exodus of people in global history. The question is, should the Europeans apologize for the slave trade, and then Americans for plantation slavery? Nearly fifty million of Mama Africa’s youths were hauled in droves out of Africa, abducted and traded faster than the women could have them. Another fifty million perished in the fray. The slave traders brought Africa, a civilization that was in the forefront of global civilization at the time, to its knees. The Europeans, the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Danes, and the British, to name just a few, broke Mama Africa’s heart, and shattered her pot of history into a million pieces. King Gizenga and his elders fought hard against the vicious cycle of millions of guns for slaves. The king of Bakano opposed the chaos, the brutality, and blamed them for the abductions, the raids and the inter-group wars. Though Africans have already apologized for their role, the canon guns indicate that they were in some ways unwilling participants. African resistance was brutally crushed. The impact on Africa was monumental. Has the time come for the Europeans and Americans to apologize, make atonement and help Africa get back on the road of progress?
