About The Historical Chattel Enslavement Selling Markets Sites
Operations At Natchez Forks Of The Road Juncture At Liberty Road, Saint
Catherine Street And Washington Road Now Called D’Evereaux Street.
Like no other deep southwest
historic site, the Forks of the Roads juncture speaks to America’s domestic
chattel slavery history of enslavers investing in human commodities and
accumulation of wealth and community development produced by enslaved people
who were forced-brought in captivity on the overground railroad routes from the
upper to the lower south.
Forks of Road speaks to how mothers, fathers, sons, daughters,
uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and male and female relationships were
torn apart just as had been done in the Africa to the Americas trans Atlantic
enslavement trafficking;
The Forks speaks to enslaved peoples’ humanity, history, arts,
culture and community development contributions denied, omitted and white-out
by racism discrimination, thus, history’s other half that must be told here;
Forks of the Road speak to the lower Mississippi Valley presence
of and human history of American Africans and American Europeans yesterday and
today;
The Forks speaks to past and present African descendants’
humanity, history, spiritual healing power, art, life, music, legacies and
community development contributions.
Forks also speak of when slavery
met Civil War freedom because freedom fighting ex-“slaves” U. S. Colored
Soldiers occupied the Forks.
About the Forks of the Road a Major Hub of America's Domestic
"Slave" Trading Sites at Natchez Mississippi Traveling Exhibition
This highly illustrated exhibition features historic photographs,
images, commissioned artist recreation drawing of “The Prince Among Slaves,”
copies of rare bills of sales, a re-creative “slave” trading routes map and
researched text narrative all reflecting the domestic “slave” trading and
history of chattel slavery in the Old Southwest during the 19th
century.
In late
September of 2017 our Forks of the Road a Major Hub of America's
Domestic "Slave" Trading Sites at Natchez Mississippi Traveling
Exhibition finally reached Natchez for the first time.
Every since
it was produced for Friends of the Forks of the Roads Society’s award winning
Coordinator, Ser Seshsh Ab Heter-Clifford M. Boxley by Signs Now in New Orleans
in2012, it had been showing on the national level.
It made its
debut in 2012 at Purdue University, Lafayette Indiana and showed for a year.
The Exhibition then traveled to Indianapolis where it was in the hands of our
handling Agent Joe Epps who showed it at Martin University Kwanzaa programs and
the 25th National Convention of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in
America (NCOBRA) styled as More Evidence of the "Crime Against Humanity!”
The United
Nations declare the "Atlantic Slave Trade as a “Crime Against
Humanity!”
The Exhibition traveled to Southeast Illinois University
at Edwardsville where it showed in the main library for a year (June 2016
To May 2017).
From May 2017 to September 2017 The Forks of the Road Exhibition
showed at Northeast Illinois University Chicago.
Ser Seshsh Ab Heter-CM Boxley conducted lectures on the campuses
of each University and also at an elementary school nearby Purdue University
and a high school in Edwardsville Illinois.
Since
arriving in its Natchez hometown for a first time showing the Mayor of Natchez
adopted The Exhibition in the interests of having it “show in Natchez on an
ongoing basis like the Gandy Exhibition “ at the First Presbyterian Church on
State Street in Natchez.
Dr. Vincent DeForest from in
Washington D. C. has inquired about the possible use of the Forks of the
Road Traveling Exhibition as part of the UNESCO "Slave" Trail
Project. Told him I am interested because the Forks of the Road site
have been cited in the UNESCO REPORT.
Currently a
source at Jackson State University has shown interests in having The Exhibition
at that University.
After April
15, 2018 the Forks of the Road a Major Hub of America's Domestic
"Slave" Trading Sites at Natchez Mississippi Traveling Exhibition is
available to other interested source(s) who will want to have it. It is
preferable that The Exhibition will be booked for a year or more but is not
absolutely necessary.
The
Exhibition development was funded through a Southeast Region National Park
Service National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program Grant !
A
Companion Exhibition Entitled African/European Roots of the Underground
Railroad has been showing at Natchez African American Museum at 300 Main Street
for over a year and remains on Exhibition. It shows how Africans Resisted
Europeans and Arabs invasions and captivity; forced shipping out of “The Doors
of No Return; the horrible “Middle Passages” to America’s eastern colonies and
latent American domestic force migration of enslaves to the deep southwestern
states via Natchez and beyond. 601-445-0728
