Services of Remembrance
D
uring the month of February, as the nation celebrates Black History Month, TrinityUCC takes this time to inform, educate and . . . remember, the Maafa. Derivedfrom the Swahili work for “
disaster, terrible occurrence or great tragedy 
, “Maafa was rst introduced into the African American lexicon by Mirimba Ani’s book
Letthe Circle Be Unbroken: The Implications of African Spirituality in the Diaspora
.Some academics, Maulana Karenga among them, prefer the term “African Holocaust”to describe the horrible circumstance of the African slave trade because of theimplications of intention, others favor Maafa, because it speaks to the “continual,constant, complete, and total system of human negation and nullication” inicted onAfricans and Africans in diaspora.During the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, 90% of those enslaved were sent to theCaribbean or South AmericaThe Trans-Atlantic slave trade reduced the population of men in Africa by about20%Studies and analyses typically state that around 13 million slaves were shippedfrom Africa and around 11 million arrived at ports throughout the Americans andCaribbean, but . . . While those numbers indicated 2 million died in transit, thatnumber is woefully low:
o
“As many as 8 million Africans may have died, in order to bring 4 million slavesto the Caribbean islands.” (Jan Rogozinski,
 A Brief History of the Caribbean
)
o
David Stannard, in
 American Holocaust
, estimates that 30 to 60 million Africansdied while being enslaved
o
Frederic Wertham clams that 150 million Africans died as a result of the slavetradeWhat does this death, disruption, and depopulation mean to Africa? The stripping of product labor, of intellectual capacity and cohesive societies combined with colonial-ism to stie potential and created many of the structural challenges African continuesto struggle with today!*NOTE: An excellent source of information, www.africanholocaust.net.
