Boston Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project

On August 23, 2015, a ceremony recognizing Boston as a Middle Passage port site took place at Faneuil Hall, beginning at 3pm.     This event was part of a larger effort by the National Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project (MPCPMP), an international, grassroots organization dedicated to commemorating the more than 2 million people who perished in the Middle Passage of the transatlantic human trade and the 10 million who survived. click here for the BOSTON project website
