ADoEP Black


This is the American Descendants of Enslaved People flag. The four black stripes represent what we've become while acknowledging we have room to grow. The number of bars represents the four major points where we arrived (New Orleans, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Mexico); asymmetrical alignment of the Black stripes signify the African American quiltmakers and the conditions enslaved people were transported. The four white bars represent the empty spaces left in Africa from the four major regions of African slave export from central west Africa, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Angola. The stripes streak to the right across the flag (or left if hanging backward) signify the trans-Atlantic slave trade route. The red represents the descendants' ancestors and their sacrifices, and the blue represents the Atlantic ocean, the ancestors' graveyard that fought and died along the voyage.
