    One of the largest diasporas of pre-modern times was the African Diaspora, which began at the beginning of the 16th century. During the Atlantic Slave Trade, twenty million people from West, West-Central and South-east Africa were transported to the Western Hemisphere as slaves. This population and their descendants were major influences on the culture of English, French, Portuguese and Spanish New World colonies.

    Your load is heavy
    He’s very heavy
    Just because he’s your brother
    Your brothers are your pogroms
    When you reach the doorsteps of your friends
    Starts your Diaspora
