    I watched the video on YouTube and I didn’t know that I was going to find My Ancestors, Moosa and Katy Dunbar and many others who survived the Transatlantic Slave Trade and who were born before the founding of the United States. Thank You Nicka Smith for revealing the truth.

    The most moving and riveting empirical evidenced-based history of the enslaved on American soil, with deed records, census records, estate transaction records that has every occurred. Groundbreaking history in the making. Nicka has done an outstanding job uncovering the undisclosed and hidden facts that deserve to be revealed as our ancestors are commissioning us to tell their stories, as they were prohibited from doing do. “I am Moosa Dunbar!” “I am Katy Dunbar!” I am the direct descendant of these remarkable people, who dared to survive through the dehumanization.
