When we discuss the legacies and impact of trans-Atlantic enslavement on the Diaspora, we must consider several issues. Among these is the tendency of the word “legacy” to have a positive connotation for many – where the enslavement of African people may fail with regard to this criterion. More importantly, in this presentation I would like to draw the audience’s attention to the fact that in many places, such as the United States, slavery has never been abolished by law, merely renamed. As such, it becomes difficult to discuss a legacy or aftermath of something that is still in progress. Therefore, we will take the United States as a case study of slavery changing names/forms yet remaining essentially the same in spirit and nature if not worse in terms of impact on African people.

    We often hear that slavery ended in 1865. Okunini Ọbádélé Kambon goes into detail showing that slavery never ended in the United States but was merely renamed and rebranded by presenting copious evidence such as photos , testimonials, clippings from newspaper articles of that time, n.k. I learned more about the share-cropping system, the school to prison pipeline, and the private prison industrial complex that these companies gain big profits from by exploiting Black people who are in jail working for $1.25 per hour for 8 hours daily. Highly recommend this one.
