Dr. John Henrick Clarke breaks down the African holocaust and how it affected Africa and its people.
The Maafa, the African Holocaust, the Holocaust of Enslavement, or the Black Holocaust are political neologisms that have been popularized since, and they are used to describe the history and ongoing effects of atrocities that have been inflicted upon African people, particularly when they have been committed by non-Africans (Europeans and Arabs to be exact, specifically in the context of the history of slavery, including the Trans-Saharan slave trade, the Indian Ocean slave trade, and the Atlantic slave trade) which continues to the present day through imperialism, colonialism and other forms of oppression. For example, Maulana Karenga (2001) puts slavery in the broader context of the Maafa, suggesting that its effects exceed mere physical persecution and legal disenfranchisement: the "destruction of human possibility involved redefining African humanity to the world, poisoning past, present and future relations with others who only know us through this stereotyping and thus damaging the truly human relations among peoples". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maafa
