'It was not
atypical to see a massive school of sharks darting in
and out of the wake of the ships filled with human cargo
plying the Atlantic. For miles they followed the
battered and moldy vessels, waiting to attack the
disease-ravaged black bodies that were periodically
tossed into the ocean...
Atlantic were to dry up, it would reveal a scattered pathway of human
African bones marking the various routes of the Middle Passage.'
