From West Africa to the West Indies
Peace. My name is Starmel Allah and my family is a part of the original (first) people to inhabit the Earth. Among African-American, Latino and West Indian Blacks, “race” and “ethnicity” is a complex issue due to mis-education. Such terms are used to divide a people who are a part of the original human family. Through research, I have been able to learn that my family, who are from Haiti, can be traced back to the Gold Coast of West Africa, namely Dahomey which is near Ghana. Many African-American, Latino and West Indian peoples would be surprised to find that their roots extend beyond the West Indies and the South all the way back to Africa. I encourage all to ask questions and embark on their own mission to find how far back their roots go.
