INTERNATIONAL SLAVERY ATONEMENT CRUSADE, Anago James Akeem Osho: The Slavery Atonement Crusader

INTRODUCTION

The descendants of both African and European slave traders, slave plantation owners and the people of the world should agree in spirit and truth to appease the spirit of millions of slaves who died during the trans Atlantic slave trade and let us forgive each other in truth. This is the Ideal of the International Slavery Atonement Crusade. We should not be hypocritical about this. We should not be hypocritical about the level of racism in our communities and countries. International Slavery Atonement Crusade means that we should acknowledge the persistence of hate and racism and decide to deal with it physically and spiritually.

The Yoruba religions survived condemnation and ban by European Missionaries during the Trans Atlantic Slave trade through individual and group consciousness on the part of the Yoruba slaves. The survival of the Yoruba religion and language in the Americas depend on the value and importance the Yorubas placed on their culture.
However, the religion and language of the Yoruba slaves served as a connection between them and their Ancestral root in Africa.
