The transatlantic slave trade resulted in a vast and as yet still unknown loss of life for African captives both in and outside of America. Approximately 1.2 – 2.4 million Africans died during their transport to the “New World”. More died soon upon their arrival. The amount of life lost in the actual procurement of slaves remains a mystery but may equal or exceed the amount actually enslaved.
The savage nature of the trade led to the destruction of a whole continent, millions of families and tribes and important ancient cultures. And a newly formulate people.
This history and its present evidence inspired, Janice Graham, the Founder and CEO of OUR COMMON GROUND Media and Communications to create a media and broadcast response to this Truth.
OUR COMMON GROUND Media and Communication produces live broadcasts and other interactive and educational productions to address contemporary political, governmental, legal and social-economic issues.

We remember, celebrate and count our victories in the face of great struggle . . . setting our vision on our future . . . TOGETHER from OUR COMMON GROUND.
